Technology, Coding & Society - Major (Arts)

The Technology, Coding, and Society (TCS) major program focuses on the impact of technologies, including hardware, platform and associated software, on people and on society more generally. Students learn essential computer coding skills, are taught theories on the use of digital platforms from humanistic and social science perspectives, learn to analyze the data that digital platforms produce, and then apply these concepts through practical labs and through optional work-integrated learning opportunities. Since the TCS Major is within the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology (ICCIT), students can concurrently obtain a Professional Experience Certificate in Digital Media, Communication, and Technology from ICCIT.

Limited Enrolment — Admission is based on academic performance (CGPA) in a minimum of 4.0 credits that must include a minimum grade of 65% in each of CCT109H5, CCT110H5 and CCT111H5.

Each year the ICCIT program sets a minimum required CGPA. This will vary from year to year and is based, in part, on supply and demand. All students (including transfer students) must complete 4.0 U of T credits before requesting this program.

Courses with a grade of CR/NCR will not count as part of the 4.0 credits required for program entry.

Tuition fees for students enrolling in any CCIT Specialist/Major programs will be higher than for other Arts and Science programs.
