The News and Media Research Centre (N&MRC) advances public understanding of our changing media environment. The N&MRC is Australia’s only specialist Research Centre dedicated to exploring news consumption, social and digital media networks, and the legal, ethical and social impacts of communication technologies.

N&MRC includes ten researchers and seventeen HDR students. The high quality of communication and media research at University of Canberra was ranked at world standard by the most recent Excellence in Research for Australia evaluation.

Our team leads both critical and applied studies with partners and institutions in Australia and internationally. We welcome enquiries regarding industry research collaborations, and from prospective PhD and Honours students.
