Committed to research and teaching excellence, the School of Media and Performing Arts is a vibrant community of scholars, researchers and practitioners with profile across the globe and a heritage of quality built up over 150 years. Both Media and Performing Arts courses are predominately based in the Ellen Terry Building, which is a converted 1930s art deco cinema offering a range of purpose designed spaces.
Media at Coventry University has a long-sustained reputation for innovation and enjoys a rapidly rising profile. It has established a highly distinctive ‘Open Media’ approach towards its teaching, research and professional practice and offers exciting undergraduate and postgraduate courses covering Media and Communications, Journalism, Media Production and Photography.
As a campus in a major city, in one of the most culturally vibrant regions of the UK, we pride ourselves on being an important part of the cultural life of the city and the region; in performance terms, very little happens in this city that we have not instigated or are involved in in some way. We have excellent links and close relationships with artistic employers and organisations locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
