  • Book and Media Studies

  • The Book and Media Studies program is an interdisciplinary and historical investigation of the role of printing, books, reading, and electronic and digital media in cultures past and present. It includes both print and electronic media, covering topics like manuscript and book production, internet publishing, book illustrations, advertising, censorship, and reading and entertainment alongside the development of mass media, the advent of radio, the emergence of television, global telecommunications, social media, and the World Wide Web.

    The program prepares students for vocations in journalism, publishing, editing, communications and graduate programs in information and library science. The program also introduces them to topics in the Book History and Print Culture Graduate program at the University of Toronto.

  • The Book and Media Studies Students Association (BMSSA) represents all students within the University of Toronto in the Book & Media Studies program as well as students who are taking a course from the program. BMSSA holds academic and professional development events, advocates for new courses and advancements to the program, as well as provides social opportunities for students to connect with the Book & Media Studies community.
