Goldsmiths Pride

From the Leveson Inquiry to the future of the BBC, the study of Media and Communications addresses the important questions of our times. At Goldsmiths, that study is creative and critical.

We focus on a broad understanding of media and communications, looking at a range of areas from philosophical perspectives on technology and human life and the role of news in a democracy to global screen cultures, and issues of identity.  

Our degrees demand a critical engagement with media, culture and communications through a mix of theory and practice. Here, you will be debating ideas with internationally renowned academics while being taught practice by industry professionals.

This means you might explore how a platform such as Facebook makes people feel, how it’s organised economically, how your data is tracked, stored and used, how it creates networks and then think about how it could be done differently.
