At the School of Media in the Dublin Institute of Technology we believe in preparing our graduates for the ever changing field of media by engaging them in a balanced combination of the academic analysis of mass media and in the fine craft of media production.

In addition to the School of Media's 38 full time academic staff and technical staff we draw on active media practitioners to create an exciting and creative learning environment. Our graduates are some of the most successful and internationally recognised practitioners in the file of media production, journalism and communications.

The School has developed a strong research profile in the past decade. Most staff members participate in research to some degree, with some staff members strongly involved in focussed research areas. This has been driven by two factors: recruitment of staff who are active in research; and facilitation of staff members to pursue research towards the achievement of doctoral qualifications.

There has been a very strong influence from staff research on the taught programmes in the school, in addition to the recruitment of postgraduate research students. Within the various programmes, staff research interests have led to the development of focussed elective modules, or focussed streams of modules, in advanced areas of media, journalism and digital media.
