Media and Film at Sussex is one of the top rated departments in the UK. Pioneers in the field, we launched our first Media Studies degree in 1989 and have continued to build on these traditions. In the 2013-14 Complete University Guide rankings we were ranked 11th out of 90, and in research we were ranked eighth in the last Research Assessment Exercise, with 100% of our research being rated as internationally recognised, and 75% as internationally excellent or world-leading. Our research and teaching expertise spans areas including all aspects of media theory and practice, including the study of film, digital media, critical cultural theory, digital humanities, cultural studies, gender/sexuality and media, public sphere and citizenship, media memory, sonic media and auditory culture, screen aesthetics, globilization and journalism.
