Goldsmiths, University of London (Department of Media & Communcations)




The Department of Media and Communications at Goldsmiths is one of the UK's leaders in the field of media theory and media practice. The theoretical and empirical research of our staff is recognised as having been at the forefront of media and cultural studies for the past two decades, and is the focus of a thriving research and postgraduate community. The most recent RAE (Research Assessment Exercise) in December 2001, awarded the Department a 5* rating in recognition of the national and international excellence of its research.

Goldsmiths is a lively and challenging place to study Media and Communications. We recognise the importance of supporting learning with high quality teaching. We were awarded an excellent mark (22/24) by a team from the national Quality Assurance Agency whose task it is to assess teaching and learning in universities. This is one of the best marks awarded to a university Media and Communications Department in Britain.

We emphasise high quality lectures and small group work; we aim to hold groups in practice work to around 14 and do not go above 20 in theory seminars. All our teaching takes place on one site where there is also the Rutherford Information Services Building, which houses an excellent collection of videos as well as books and brings together traditional and electronic resources in a 'state-of-the-art' setting.

Our students respond to the challenge of engaging with contemporary ideas. We attract students from a wide range of backgrounds - mature students, international students, students from the south east of London and from all over Britain. We welcome the input which each one makes to the experience of learning within the Department and the wider College.

The Department has a strong interdisciplinary theoretical team, along with a strong commitment to media practice and research equivalent activity. Within this environment, you are encouraged to engage critically with the different approaches to the media in a variety of academic and practice disciplines; to develop skills in research and presentation and to explore creative possibilities across a range of media.
