Media and Communication
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. The lead for the Discipline of Media and Communication is Dr Katarina Damjanov.
