For Arts, Literature and Communications students:

Due to health concerns, in light of COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that you purchase your own Adobe Creative Suite subscription as well as basic media equipment in order to reduce your need to come to campus.

Software

As a student, you can benefit from Adobe’s student/teacher pricing, which is roughly $26.88 (CAD) per month or $322.55 (CAD) per year.

The reason for this recommendation is to reduce your need to come to campus during the ongoing pandemic.

Equipment

It is recommended that you purchase or rent a DSLR camera as it is the camera that you will be learning about and most exposed to in your film courses.

You should also have access to:

  • Functional sound recording software (sound recording app on your phone will suffice)
  • A computer that can open and process Adobe software (Microsoft or Mac OS)
  • A good pair of headphones (not earbuds or Airpods)
