About Us

The Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies is a world-leading centre for media teaching and research.

We offer a wide range of courses at various levels. Our undergraduate degree is an academic, research-based degree which can also be combined with English or Sociology. Our postgraduate degrees range from industry oriented, practice-based training to more academic degrees, from Masters to PhD.

The School combines a long-standing record of excellence in teaching and training with an outstanding research portfolio – routinely winning awards from a wide range of bodies. This reputation was recently recognised in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), which ranked the school 2nd for the quality of its journalism, media and communications research when compared with 66 other institutions in the UK.

89% of the School's research was classed as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ by REF, with both the school’s research environment and the impact of its research receiving the top possible score of 100%.

Our lecturers regularly contribute expert opinion and commentary about research and topical news events to the national media and the school blog – JOMEC @ Cardiff University.

Prospective and current students can keep up-to-date with news and events using @CardiffJOMEC on Twitter and also Facebook, where the school is often referred to by the acronym JOMEC. We are also part of the University’s College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences.
