Welcome to The School of Arts 

A warm welcome to your academic home in the School of Arts, a new academic department formed from the amalgamation of our former departments of Dance, Drama and Media, Culture and Language. As such we offer an unusually wide variety of courses ranging from dance to linguistics and computing via journalism and drama. This is also a landmark year for the School because our fantastic new media centre, The Sir David Bell Building, opened in September 2020.

As we return to normal life on campus after a year of online learning, you will be one of the first to take full advantage of these excellent new facilities. It's home to a cinema, film and TV studio, photography and Mac suites, newsroom, language technologies and stylish teaching spaces. There are also a number of light filled spaces in which you can work, socialise and get to know your peers. We encourage you to find your favourite part of the building and visit it often. 

Our teaching staff have international reputations as performance makers, writers, media commentators, photographers and film makers. They will help you develop the knowledge, confidence, and skills to prepare you for a wide range of work and life opportunities. 

We hope you enjoy your time with us and delve into the vibrant artistic, creative and media-rich opportunities that Roehampton and the whole of London has to offer. 

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon. 

Best wishes 

Professor Annabelle Mooney, Dean of School
