Welcome to the Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences


The Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences (MaKS) is one of the youngest of the fourteen faculties of the University of Malta having been established in 2011 to offer study programmes and carry out research that are relevant in a knowledge society and that reflect the importance of the knowledge-based economy. The Faculty has recently moved into a refurbished and extended building that includes a new Digital Arts Lab and Art Room, new Cognitive Science Lab, new lecture halls, seminar rooms, and meeting areas.

The Faculty offers a number of taught programmes at Diploma, Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. These include programmes relating to the media and communications, digital arts, marketing communications, the management of knowledge and information, and cognitive science.

MaKS is made up of six departments that deal with different aspects of knowledge. 



The Faculty’s diverse research streams, which have attracted over EUR 1.5 million of European Union research funding under the FP7 and H2020 funding programmes, continue to pursue the investigation of knowledge creation, its accumulation and transfer, and its multiple uses in society. MaKS embraces cognitive neuroscience and social science research as theoretical frameworks for communication, as well as different forms of digital media expressions and social structures that make the dissemination of knowledge possible.
