Media, Journalism and Film is a new department formed from the previous subject area of Journalism and Media within the School. The intention in creating this new department is to expand and develop our work in this area.

In 2016 the University received a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for work in the School in contemporary music. The new department forms part of this ambition.

The Department of Media, Journalism and Film is based in a modern building and the School has consistently invested in new facilities including the Panasonic HD TV Studio, a Digital Radio Studio and, most recently, a state-of-the-art digital Newsroom. A new 7.1 Surround Sound facility for Film Studies is to be opened shortly. Research is a priority for the School and new research initiatives in the Department are developing including the formation of a new research Centre for Participatory Culture (CenPaC).

As Head of Department you will contribute to management and development of the School of Music, Humanities and Media and help set the future direction of Media, Journalism and Film. You will lead and develop staff to bring out the best in them, you will lead research activity, securing funding and building capacity through internal and external collaborations. You will help develop the School and Department’s research, teaching and international strategies for growth.
