Graphic Design & Interactive Media Diploma



In recognition of the synergy between graphic design and the entertainment industry, we are pleased to announce that the Academy of Design’s Graphic Design & Interactive Media program will now be offered under the banner of Toronto Film School.

Dr. Rick Davey, President of RCC Institute of Technology, said: “This repositioning offers unique opportunities for collaboration between film students, actors, writers and video game developers. Bringing these programs together at TFS creates rich learning opportunities through interdisciplinary collaboration that can’t take place in the same way at another school.” 

At the Toronto Film School, students will have the opportunity for collaboration across disciplines, thereby experiencing a true industry environment and developing a diversified portfolio.
