Experts in our field
In the School of Communication, we teach from experience. Many of our staff come from industry, or combine their teaching responsibilities with ongoing professional practice. This means they bring a unique blend of theoretical knowledge and hands-on expertise into the classroom. As a School, we’ve developed and retained strong industry networks that open doors for our students — think internships, guest lectures and awards and scholarships — and that enable industry partners to contribute to the content that we teach.
Highly reputed researchers
UTS may be a young university, but the research program in the School of Communication is mature beyond its years. Led by outstanding academics, our research covers the domains of Writing and History, Cultural Diversity, Journalism, Communication and Media Studies, Digital Media, Screen and Sound Studies, Politics, Society and the Environment. We take a contemporary focus to these traditional disciplines: our work responds to the technological, social and cultural disruptions that shape the world today.
Whether it’s teaching excellence, innovation in research or the pursuit of social justice, our staff are regularly recognised for the outstanding work they do. Recent achievements include:
- Professor Jim Macnamara, winner of the Don Bartholomew Award for Outstanding Service to the Communications Industry
- Associate Professor Heidi Norman, winner of the 2016 Neville Bonner Award for Indigenous Education
- Lucy Fiske, winner of the Jo Wilton Memorial Award at the 2016 UTS Human Rights Awards.
