Media and Communication Studies at Örebro University is a thriving research environment of recognised international standing. It is the home of two International peer-reviewed journals: the Journal of Language and Politics and Social Semiotics, as well as the Bloomsbury book series Advances in Critical Discourse Studies. The department is a world leader in the field of critical discourse studies.

The research is conducted within three groups. The research group Discourse, Communication and Media (DCM) focuses on critical, multimodal discourse studies, analyses of talk, and journalism studies from a global perspective. Studies investigate all forms of communication in contemporary journalism, politics, popular culture and society taking place on various media platforms. Moving Images and Screen Cultures (MISC) group includes researchers with backgrounds ranging from different areas in Film Studies. Thea areas span from new cinema history research to studies in transmedia storytelling as well as film philosophy. Research in the third group, Strategic Communication (SCOM) looks at how the contemporary media landscape influences the development of strategic communication and its audience / target groups with special interest in strategic communication between companies, authorities and politicians.
