School of Media and Communication

From political campaigns and international affairs to popular culture and social networking, communication and the media are at the centre of everyday life. We cannot fully understand modern societies without understanding media and communication.

You’ll critically examine how people share knowledge, values and beliefs through television, journalism, film, online media, and beyond. Our degrees emphasise choice and opportunity, allowing you to tailor your degree to your own strengths and interests.

The School of Media and Communication is actively working to build a diverse and inclusive school community that supports all staff and students. Our Equality and Inclusion Lead is Professor Julie Firmstone. Access staff and student resources and find out more about our current projects.
