The National Universities Commission (NUC) has announced that Mass Communication has been divided into seven separate degree programs. Prior to this, mass communication was a stand-alone degree program.
This decision comes after the program was said to be too wide as a single course. NUC’s executive secretary, Professor Abubakar Rasheed, noted that the course has now been sub-divided into Journalism and Media Studies, Public Relations, Advertising, Broadcasting, Film and Multi-Media Studies, Development Communication Studies and Information and Media Studies.
The new changes would take effect from 2020 admissions into Nigerian universities once the present accreditation demands are met.
