Arts, Media and Communication Research Centre

The Arts, Media and Communications Centre bring research into arts, humanities and social sciences together. With over 100 post-graduate students it is the largest research centre within the university, with the centre focusing on domestic and international contemporary collaborative work. Recently having established the Salford International Innovation Studio at MediaCityUK this further brings together research staff, artists, designers and other creative practitioners.

The research conducted is often in anticipation of and influenced by the needs of our media industry neighbours such as ITV, BBC and Dock 10 working on developing high impact technologies. Our research also helps the lives of people in the community, for example our ‘Design against Crime’ research project which has helped to transform the design of our cities to ensure they are safer and better suited for our communities.
