From the Royal Pavilion in the Regency era to Mods and Rockers in the 1960s to the present day annual Brighton Festival, Brighton is a vibrant centre for the creative arts, popular culture and heritage with an international reputation.

The University of Brighton plays a major role at the centre of that culture. It is one of the founding and leading institutions for research in Design History with professors who are world authorities and research that includes international design, feminist art curation, self and identity, the photography of scenes of conflict and postcolonial collecting and representation. 

Scholarship at all levels aims to understand local and global societies through the culture of designed objects and environments and the meaning of material things. Together with their students, staff foster an active scholarly environment at Brighton, offering a range of courses from the innovative, career-focussed undergraduate suite to a far-reaching and influential PhD programme. 

Enhanced by significant partnerships, nationally and internationally, notably with the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Brighton fosters research within and around its own Design Archives, and provides a scholarly home for ventures such as Screen Archive South East and the Research Collective for Dress and Textile History
