In many ways, communication studies is the social science of the 21st century. The world comes to us through television, film, the web, emerging new media platforms and portable devices as well as a range of media arts. The messages we receive through these various media and the manner in which they are presented to us has a profound impact on how we see the world, others and ourselves. The Department of Communication, Media and Film engages with key issues and debates that have animated communication, media, cinema studies, and film production since the early days of the 20th century to the present.
