Faculty of Media & Communication

Our staff

The Faculty of Media & Communication encompasses diverse disciplines across its five departments and schools. Within each are teams of experts in their respective fields, who have vast industry experience, valuable knowledge and active research interests that they pass on to our students and share with one another. Collaboration across disciplines is an integral part of what we do, and our staff regularly work together to produce thought-leadership pieces and commentary on current events that impact the media, politics and much more in between.
