School of Arts
Our School of Arts is the creative hub of the University of Roehampton. It offers a diverse range of courses in the areas of computing, dance, drama, film, journalism, linguistics and media – taught by academics at the cutting-edge of their subjects.
At Roehampton, we place immense value on community and creativity. Our academics and students are diverse, dynamic, innovative and international in their outlook. During your time studying in the School of Arts, you’ll not only have the academic grounding to thrive as a graduate, but you’ll also learn about yourself as a creative.
We work with our students to nurture their creative, professional and academic talents, and provide them with the opportunity to both broaden their horizons and specialise in areas of interest to them. Our programmes integrate practice and theory to provide our students with a full and rich understanding of their disciplines, alongside a host of transferrable skills to ensure they are well-equipped with the tools they need to pursue rewarding careers.
Whether you’re a computer scientist in the making, a budding journalist or have a passion for performance, our teaching facilities and learning resources can springboard you to success during your time at Roehampton. You will have the opportunity to work in our dedicated dance studios, our on campus theatre and our brand new state of the art media centre – that houses a 100-seater cinema, hi-tech editing and video production suites, a Mac lab, newsroom plus stylish new teaching and social spaces.
Studying at the School of Arts is the best of both worlds. You’ll be studying in a safe, green and peaceful environment while having easy access to one of the world’s largest creative and cultural hubs: London. We work closely with external arts venues, creative institutions and industry leaders across the capital – meaning that you’ll have access to the heart of Britain’s vibrant arts community.
