THE SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION
We are facing new, exciting communication challenges within a world of growing connectivity between networks, people and things. The School of Communication is rising to those challenges and seeks to lead debate and change, through informing and enhancing forward-thinking and transformative processes, approaches and strategies.
The School of Communication embraces agility and interdisciplinarity, while maintaining and extending the frontiers of specialisms through the Programme offer and research focus. The links with industry are reinforced by the School’s location at White City, London.
The School of Communication enables creativity and innovation within a challenging and supportive framework. Critical making and thinking are supported and encouraged through facilitated forums for play, experimentation and risk-taking. The School’s staff are experienced practitioners, researchers, academics and specialist visiting lecturers, who bring ‘real-world’ knowledge and the necessary guidance and support for the development of new ideas, methods or strategies.
The School of Communication de-programmes, de-mystifys, de-computes and re-forms. The opportunity for evolving new views of, and for, the world, arise through rigorous approaches to research, critical self-reflection and making. Students are encouraged to explore new territories and responses, often collaboratively across the College and through externally commissioned projects.
The School of Communication’s intent is to question, provoke and offer solutions for a world where the culture of ownership, control, belief and equality has shifted. Whether operating in a social, artistic, commercial, political or academic context, as communicators the School is well placed to contribute to the building of a better future.
The School of Communication currently offers four MA programmes that engage with communication design on multiple levels: Animation, Digital Direction, Information Experience Design and Visual Communication. All have a strong culture of innovation, experimentation and debate, and are focused on developing and challenging practice within an environment that intentionally encourages interdisciplinary collaboration and thinking, developing transferable skills and responses.
Based on a clear model that scales consolidated delivery with specialist study, the School is ideally placed to take on projects which innovate and extend while ensuring depth of subject expertise.
Alongside this sit MRes, MPhil and PhD students, and a number of key Research and Knowledge Exchange projects, ensuring a rich research foundation and source for all curricula development and delivery, including across the RCA.
