Media are all around us, influencing how we think, how we interpret our social environment and how we conduct our everyday lives. The world comes to us through television, film, the web, new/social media platforms and mobile devices.

The Department of Communication, Media and Film (CMF) offers students the opportunity to develop the conceptual and critical skills necessary to interpret our media saturated world and the significant changes engendered by rapidly developing communication technologies. Our students are also engaged as producers, as “meaning-makers,” through an array of “hands-on” courses that allow students to produce their own stories about their experiences and communities in a variety of media formats using industry standard equipment and software. In fact, Communication, Media and Film at the University of Windsor is one of the few programs in Canada that combines a social sciences, theory-based format with digital media production.
