The School of Media, Art and Design at Canterbury Christ Church University is one of the longest-established schools of its kind in the UK and is celebrating its 38th anniversary this year. We offer undergraduate programmes in games design, television, radio, film, digital media, graphic design, photography, journalism, media and communication and public relations; an MA by Research; and PhD research supervision in Media and Cultural Studies and Film Studies. Our programmes integrate theory with practice and creativity with professionalism. We have built a strong reputation for the quality and creative excellence of our work and the progression of our graduates into the media, art and design professions. We have grown strongly since 2007 and now have some 700 students and around 52 FTE academic and support staff. Our specialist facilities are industry standard. We have a growing profile in research and knowledge exchange, as shown by our REF 2014 results, and a particular interest in the inter-relationships between media, art and design and communities and cultures as demonstrated by our Research Centre for Communities and Cultures. Practice-based research is an increasingly important dimension of our work with staff producing and exhibiting film, video, sound, digital media, fine art, photography, screenwriting and journalism nationally and internationally.
