School of Arts and Communication

The School of Arts and Communication has a creative and professionally focused mission. Our degrees prepare students for performing in the creative professions, such as creative writing, film and cultural heritage, and the communications professions, including journalism, public and corporate communication, sports media, and marketing communication. We have strong connections with the professions and cultural fields, and given our location in the nation’s capital, have extensive networks into government and cultural institutions.

In addition to our education activities, the School of Arts and Communication has an outstanding research record. Our research has achieved nation-wide ERA rankings of 3, meaning our research is classified as “performance at world standard”, in our two main fields of research, Performing Arts and Creative Writing (1904) and Communication and Media Studies (2001). We reflexively integrate our research into our teaching in a continual pursuit of high impact and engaging outcomes.
