School of Communications, Arts & Social Sciences
Dr. Alex Seago
Richmond is a particularly interesting university at which to study Communication, Arts and Social Sciences. Virtually every student is from a different country, often far from home and typically coping with issues of identity, culture, consumption language, religion, society, citizenship and history – all of which are key topics in many of the courses taught within the degree programmes offered within our School.
Our students often comment on the ready availability of our faculty. Average classes at Richmond are both much smaller and much more ethnically diverse than at most other universities. With a typical Junior or Senior level class size of between ten to twenty students we emphasize individual attention, small group work, student participation, personal research paper writing and seminar-style discussion rather than large, impersonal lectures and 'multiple-choice' styles of testing.
Our aim as faculty is to ensure that, by the time you graduate, you have a really solid theoretical and methodological grounding in your chosen course of study, ending with a substantial piece of individual research and the possibility of a career-related internship. Our success here is one of the main reasons why Richmond’s alumni have gained entry to leading graduate schools all over the world and have excellent employment records after graduation.
We invite you to join us and to add your own creativity and energy to Richmond.
