A new Bachelor of Media Studies program at UBC Okanagan aims to establish direct links between graduates and in-demand tech jobs. A UBCO release states that the program will train graduates for careers in high-demand areas of the tech industry, including game development, web design, interactive media, film production, and graphic design. “Kelowna’s tech industry is flourishing, with start-ups alongside established companies like Disney and Bardel Entertainment having offices in the valley,” says UBCO Principal Deborah Buszard. “The industry needs graduates with tech talent as well as creative and managerial skills and entrepreneurial spirit. Our new BMS program will provide the bridge from academic study to industry success.” UBCO
