Media, Communication and Performing Arts
All of our media and communication-related undergraduate courses, including the only programme in Scotland accredited by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), offer a critical understanding of the media, culture and society, while one sixth of each programme is devoted to practical media production. QMU is the only Scottish Institution to offer CIPR accredited undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and to teach the CIPR Diploma.
QMU has an excellent reputation for providing undergraduate degrees in the performing arts and we have produced many graduates who have gone on to become familiar faces on stage and screen. Our staff are a lively community of enquiring practitioners. Our aim is to educate and train theatre and screen practitioners, and cultural sector workers, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The emphasis is firmly on the creative practice of making performance for live and recorded media, and on the study of the cultural sector. This practice is strongly rooted in theory. The staff team is comprised of working theatre and screen directors, actors, writers, journalists, designers, community arts workers, cultural sector workers, musical directors, stage managers, technicians, voice coaches and choreographers. In addition, the School regularly engages guest staff and resident theatre companies.
Psychology and Sociology
We are rapidly expanding our undergraduate and postgraduate courses, while maintaining the high standards required for accreditation by the Bristish Psychological Society.
Successful students on our Health Psychology and Psychology BSc Honours degrees all become eligible for Membership of the British Psychological Society and Graduate Basis for Registration.
At postgraduate level, our courses are mostly available on a full-time and part-time basis. Some are taught in short blocks which means that you may only need to visit the university a few times.
