Profile Information

Welcome to the newly-formed School of Arts and Communication at Leeds Trinity University.

The School boasts a wealth of staff expertise across a range of disciplines, a strong focus on the development of employability skills in our students and a newly-invigorated emphasis on research bolstered by a growing community of PhD students, along with the work of two research centres. The School is home to the long-standing Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies and the newly-established International Research Centre for Interactive Storytelling (IRIS).

Our current undergraduate degree programmes cover History, English, Creative Writing, Media, Film, Television, Journalism and Theology and Religious Studies but work is underway to expand the range of provision, with Politics and International Relations, due to start in 2017, leading developments in this area.

There is postgraduate provision in Journalism, Victorian Studies and Creative Writing. Staff also deliver CPD to external organisations, with a track record in media training and social media development.

Thanks to excellent television and radio studios facilities, along with a range of other media production opportunities, the School is able to offer its students the opportunity to work with industry-standard equipment and on a plethora of creative projects, many of which are outward-facing or involve work with external clients or organisations.

Our staff have strong links with employers and a range of professional organisations. These links are used to underpin our placement provision for undergraduate students and to provide a range of opportunities for experts to visit the University or students to get involved with external events.

Key developments for the School are around enhancing and developing undergraduate provision to ensure excellent student experience and attainment, growing our research expertise, outputs and associated income and developing knowledge exchange opportunities.
