Our school

Here in Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Culture we offer an outstanding environment in which to learn, think and develop vital personal and professional skills.

Cardiff – a thriving media city

In 2018, we moved into Two Central Square – a custom state-of-the-art building situated in the heart of Cardiff’s media community.

We worked closely with architects and designers to maximise the building’s potential in order to deliver a 21st century vision of the University environment. Two Central Square’s surroundings and impressive facilities have greatly enhanced our students’ learning experience and opened many new opportunities.

Our teaching portfolio recently expanded with two new MA courses – Digital Documentaries and Cultural and Creative Industries – which build upon our expert teaching and research in these areas.

Highly ranked in the UK and internationally

Whilst rankings can never fully reflect what a School can offer, they do represent an important indicator highlighting a combination of factors, such as investment, recruitment and graduate success.

We are highly ranked within the UK by the Complete University Guide and Guardian University League Tables, and internationally by the QS World Rankings by Subject.

Major research grants

On a regular basis we secure prestigious research awards, with recent major grants contributing to our work in the cultural and creative industries, public service broadcasting, and community journalism. Each of these grants serves to forge further links with external stakeholders, helping us to address real-word issues, challenges and priorities.

Industry engagement and impact

Our Centre for Community Journalism has now become a leading player in local journalism by establishing the Independent Community News Network. Creative Cardiff, who engage and connect all aspects of the city’s cultural sector, received the inaugural Civic Award for their positive impact at the Cardiff Life Awards. The School is the leading figure behind the launch of Clwstwr, a multi-million pound programme to drive innovation in the screen industries by creating new products, services and experiences to boost the sector in South Wales.

Our mission is to foster a unique, enriching interplay between ‘theory’ and ‘practice,’ ensuring they mutually reinforce one another to considerable advantage, whether in the realm of professional skills and proficiencies, cutting-edge academic research or creative policymaking.
