The department’s history goes back 70 years, and it has an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. The department works collaboratively with the media industry and the library and information professions, in addition to developing research partnership agreements in the public sector.
The department offers its own unique social learning space, the Multimedia Resource Laboratory, managed by a full-time technical officer and featuring two teaching laboratories with the latest hardware and software, seminar, and meeting rooms, plus 20 iMacs and Wi-Fi access.
The department’s location in the northwest which boasts the second-largest digital industry cluster in Europe – creates excellent opportunities for students, as reflected in its strong programme of guest speakers and students gaining employment in many agencies around Manchester and the region, as well as the BBC.
