Communication and Media Studies

Media buzz was strong even before the advent of the internet. Today, it is almost deafening. How does this affect our society at the local and global level and how does it affect us? Through research into media, we get the opportunity to analyse, explain and understand the conditions of various media and their impact on individuals and organisations.

The research at the Department of Communication and Media specialises in the study of media, society and culture. Our research deals with structures and processes for communication and media in modern society. Among other things, we investigate TV, films, books, newspapers and magazines, advertising, social media and mobile technology in relation to politics, society and culture.

The department has international expertise within four areas:

  • Democracy, influence and social media
  • Gender roles, health and society
  • Audiences and popular culture
  • Children and digital media

Lively environment

Research projects at the department are funded by the Swedish Research Council and the EU, among others. We take part in networks and collaborations in the Nordic area, Europe and the rest of the world. Our researchers work with public and commercial media, with media policy and media production, as well as with NGOs. Our courses are offered in Swedish and English within a broad range of specialisations for students at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD levels. The research environment is lively, with a well-established research studies programme, visiting researchers, recurring international seminar series, conferences and events.
