Overview

From Polka Dot Door to Annedroids, children’s media is a key part of Canada’s entertainment industry. This first-of-its-kind in Canada program will teach you to create, manage and market numerous media products for the growing children’s market.

By exploring media, including television, interactive digital media, books and games, you’ll hone your storytelling abilities, business skills and production management practices. You’ll also learn about the industry’s major components such as:

  • production
  • budgeting
  • financing
  • marketing
  • publishing
  • business management

To develop this insight and become career-ready, you’ll use professional software, pitch to broadcasters and producers, visit production companies and attend industry events and complete an industry field placement.

Your final semester is where all your skills get to shine during your work-placement period. This is your opportunity to find the area of children’s media that speaks to you! Whether it be in licensing and merchandising, or in the writer’s room, the Centennial College Children’s Media program will put you on the right path to getting there.

While in the program, you will receive front line experience in:

  • Creating a brand plan
  • Starting and developing content for a YouTube channel
  • Working alongside a client relevant to the industry – Scholastics Canada being just one of the clients who partner with the students
  • And so much more!

This will allow you to enter the workplace with a variety of experience in different sectors and completely understanding what to do in any situation. Graduates of this program have been known to be hired into the field within six months to a year of graduation, and two alumni received Daytime Emmy nominations in 2018!
