Why study Media and Communications at Goldsmiths?
From the Leveson Inquiry to the future of the BBC, the study of media and communications addresses the important issues 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, right through to global screen cultures, and issues of identity.
- We’re ranked among the world’s best. We’re 22nd in the world for communication and media studies (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015), and 1st in the UK for the quality of our research (Research Excellence Framework 2014 Times Higher Education research intensity subject rankings).
- We’ve also been ranked by LinkedIn as one of the top graduate universities for media professionals, because so many of our graduates go on to find jobs in the industry.
- We’re dynamic and creative. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in EastLondonLines.co.uk – a 24/7 news website run by our students.
- You’ll have access to a calendar of events featuring world-renowned writers and practitioners that have recently included Danny Boyle, Gurinda Chadha, Noel Clark and Tessa Ross.
- At Goldsmiths you’ll be part of some powerful conversations and encouraged to see and do things differently.
- We’re inside the media. You’ll take practice courses taught by visiting tutors who are industry professionals active in TV, film, journalism, radio and animation. And you’ll be part of a department that’s setting the standard – we’re home to the Goldsmiths Skillset Media Academy endorsed by Skillset, which monitors media industry skills and training.
The Department of Media and Communications offers an Erasmus scheme which enables you to live in a European city for part of your degree.
