Department of Communication and Media 

About us
The Department of Communication and Media is a leading centre for the study of how ideas are influenced, expressed and shared.

We are a rapidly growing department, with a long-standing reputation for interesting and innovative research in media, cultural and communication studies; and we maintain exciting partnerships with industry, the arts and key creative venues in Liverpool, nationally and internationally.

As you would expect from a Russell Group university, our internationally-acclaimed research is casting innovative light on many aspects of the discipline and engaging with the very latest topics, such as fake news and online harassment.

Not only do these insights feed directly into our teaching, but we also influence many fields and industries – from politics and entertainment, to healthcare and e-business.

Masters programmes

We offer three exciting Masters programmes, two of which examine media and communication within the digital and political contexts:

Our third programme, the MSc in Strategic Communication, combines a range of conceptual knowledge and practical skills which are crucial for successfully managing a variety of strategic communication activities. The programme features an impressive range of guest speakers from industry, with representatives from Google, Lego and the UK Government among those confirmed for upcoming appearances.

The Department is a lively and supportive environment in which to undertake research studies. From political communication to discourse and culture; from heritage industries to media and entertainment; and from film and television to social media, our cutting edge research links strongly with most key areas of inquiry in this major field of studies.
