Journalism and Mass Communication

Study in the media capital of Europe

London is the media capital of Europe and probably the world. So where better to study media?

Whether you want to take practice or theory courses, Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design, with our contacts and connections, can bring you closer to the heartbeat of the media city.

Students of journalism, television, public relations and radio take on real-life assignments as they acquire technical and professional skills in our state of the art studios. All of our tutors in these disciplines are themselves practitioners and bring rich experience to their teaching. With our excellent facilities for radio and television, as well as industry-standard software for print and web design, we can give you an unbeatable learning experience.

Highly respected by our industry supporters, including the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky, as well as a range of national newspapers and magazines, the department is also a world leader in media research, and was rated top in the country at the last Research Assessment Exercise. Our theory courses are taught by internationally known authors, all of whom are continuing their research as part of our Communication and Media Research Institute.

Whatever course you chose to study, you will take with you an experience that will last a lifetime.
