Media and Communications

Exploring the rapidly evolving, media-driven world and its impact on our identities, relationships and communities

Media and Communication at The University of Western Australia provides critical insights into our everyday, political, social, cultural and professional encounters with contemporary media cultures and communication practices.

This discipline area is one of the most exciting and rapidly evolving areas of study in today's media-driven world. What we know about the world, and how we act in it, is critically related to the use of communication technologies, from language to screen, and from text to image in digital settings.

Research areas

Our research uses a range of methodological and analytical approaches to explore digital, screen, gaming and networked technologies, and investigate their role in re-imagining the political, social and educational spheres.

Project highlights

Our research projects cover a range of interdisciplinary subjects in the area of media and communication with partners across the globe.
