School of Art, Design and Media (ADM)
Our mission is to provide an educational ethos which emphasises a distinctive relationship between practice and research in a cultural context.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses fully exploit the links with other disciplines within the University. The School is particularly proud of its international links and many of the courses offer opportunities for industrial placement and academic exchange. Unlike many other industry sectors Art, Design and Media continues to benefit from high growth rates and expanding global markets.
Creativity, adaptability and communication are the skills which bring creative practitioners success. They are recognised by employers and government as essential to the country's economic success, and as such are in great demand.
The highly successful all-through programme with its emphasis on Research into Practice is recognised nationally and by our European partners for its excellence. It offers a valuable learning environment in which students can progress to join the Postgraduate and Higher Research Degrees programmes.
Portsmouth graduates report significantly higher career satisfaction than the average for the sector.
