AHRC funding (South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership 2
Cardiff is part of a consortium of 10 universities that form the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership. The School of Journalism, Media and Culture (JOMEC) has a long-standing reputation as a world-leading centre for innovative teaching and research. Researchers engage with pressing contemporary issues and debates bringing together theory and practice. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessment, our research was ranked 2nd in the UK in terms of its quality and impact.
A key strength of JOMEC's research environment is the ongoing dialogue between research and practice-based staff delivering impactful research and policy.
JOMEC's cutting-edge research findings are shared through weekly seminars featuring speakers from across the UK and internationally. We also host the renowned biennial ‘Future of Journalism' conference bringing together scholars and practitioners from around the world contributing to a lively research environment.
JOMEC's state of the art facilities at Two Central Square situates us at the centre of local and national media, including BBC Cymru/Wales whose brand-new headquarters is situated next door. Our location facilitates building of strong industry links, boosting students' employability through access to major media organisations within the important and growing sector of the creative and cultural industries.
JOMEC academics have multi-disciplinary backgrounds from across the social sciences and humanities; have a strong tradition of teamwork and collaborative publications, and a substantial industry base.
