The Institute of Communication, Culture, Information & Technology (ICCIT) offers interdisciplinary programs at the University of Toronto Mississauga:

  • CCIT Major
  • Digital Enterprise Management (DEM) Specialist
  • Professional Writing and Communication Major and Minor
  • Technology, Coding & Society

ICCIT programs combine academic courses in the arts and sciences with hands-on applied courses in digital media and technology. The focus of these ICCIT programs is on the generation, diffusion, and social impact of new technologies, and complex interactions between media, knowledge and communication technologies and individuals, organizations and society.

In addition to receiving an honours degree from the University of Toronto, ICCIT students who successfully complete CCIT Major or DEM Specialist programs have the opportunity to obtain a Certificate in Digital Communications from Sheridan College.

Entry into ICCIT programs is limited and students are urged to read the program information in the calendar carefully and to consult the institute. For more detailed information, refer to

Certificate of Completion in Media Studies

The Certificate of Completion in Media Studies has been administratively suspended, pending review. New students cannot currently enroll in workshops to complete this Certificate of Completion.

The Certificate of Completion in Media Skills offers students in an ICCIT program the opportunity to refine and build their connections with media concepts, technologies, ideas, industries, peers, mentor, and community outside of the formal classroom. Through a series of self-curated workshops, students will direct their own learning and engage with their community in unique ways. Workshops will enrich classroom learning by providing students with active learning opportunities to hone and practice technical skills; learn about professional and industry application; hear from industry leaders and experts as well as ICCIT faculty and alumni; and network with their peers and mentors.

Students currently registered in any ICCIT program (i.e. DEM Specialist, CCIT Major, TCS Major, PWC Major and Minor) are eligible to participate in these workshops and earn the Certificate of Completion in Media Skills. ICCIT students will automatically have access to the ICCIT Media Skills Workshop Quercus where they can explore the current roster of available workshops and register for those that fit best with their personal interests as well as personal and professional goals. Completion of a minimum of ten (10) workshops will earn students the Certificate of Completion in Media Skills.

The Certificate of Completion in Media Skills is an optional certificate that students may choose to complete in combination with their ICCIT program/ subject post. Students may also register and attend standalone Media Skills workshops without completing the Certificate of Completion in Media Skills. Students are also eligible to complete both this Certificate of Completion in Media Skills and the Professional Experience Certificate in Digital Media, Communication and Technology (also offered through ICCIT).

Laptop Requirement

Delivering rich and meaningful educational experiences is at the forefront of ICCIT’s teaching efforts.

To facilitate this end, students accepted into ICCIT's CCIT, DEM and TCS programs are expected to have a laptop with the recommended minimum technical requirements to support industry-standard software, including the Adobe Creative Cloud. For more detailed information, refer to

ICCIT Advising

Students should also review the Degree Requirements section prior to selecting courses
