Communications Technology delivers a collection of courses from the CTS cluster called Media, Design & Communication Arts (MDC).
”The focus of the MDC cluster is for students to develop and apply important knowledge, skills and attitudes so they can provide well designed and aesthetically effective communication solutions. CTS courses are competency-based instructional units defined by learning outcomes that identify what a student is expected to know and be able to do. Courses include outcomes with practical applications, and each course represents approximately 25 hours of access to instruction. CTS courses are weighted at 1 credit each and are divided into three levels of achievement: introductory, intermediate and advanced” (taken from the Program of Studies on learnalberta.ca). Each student will be required to complete at least 3 courses (often called modules) in the semester, but the opportunity to complete more is there for students who are motivated and interested.
