About us

School of the Arts

The School of the Arts provides world-class teaching and cutting-edge research in deep and creative areas of human meaning - Art and Aesthetics, Architecture and Design, Film, English Literature, English Language, Communication and Media Studies, Music, Ethics, Philosophy and Religion. We offer you a doubly rich environment: externally, following Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008 and in collaboration with leading arts institutions such as Tate Liverpool, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, FACT, The Reader Organisation, The Playhouse and Everyman Theatres, and National Museums Liverpool; and internally, to a rich inter-disciplinary setting that brings support, sharing and stimulus to a wide variety of postgraduates, with links to further initiatives in creativity, health and well being.


Communication and Media

Communication and Media is a close-knit community of dedicated, innovative teachers and researchers that extends a warm welcome to postgraduate taught and research students.

We have invested heavily in our postgraduate research programme over the last few years. Our students enjoy a strongly supportive system of training and supervision, with opportunities to present work and to network with the rest of the University’s postgraduate research community.

We have a diverse range of research and teaching interests – and in research we are especially well-known for:

  • screen media (esp. British and US cinema)
  • communication, politics and power
  • sociolinguistics, communication and language
  • media theory
  • media, war and conflict
  • human rights, ethics and media
  • gender and identity in media
  • broadcasting
  • global entertainment industries
  • new media and digital communication
  • urban cultural studies and digital spatialities
