According to the latest reports, the National University Commission NUC has divided Mass Communication in Universities into 7 different programmes.
This was made public by the Executive Secretary of the NUC, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, who stressed that the era of Mass Communication as a course in universities is over, as the seven different programmes are expected to kick off in March 2020.
Rasheed said, “We have almost concluded the unbundling of Mass Communication. At the end of first quarter (of 2020), Mass Communication will not be existing as a stand-alone degree programme because it is too wide.
“We are unbundling the programme into seven different programmes: Bachelors Degrees in Public Relations, Marketing Communications, Media studies, Film studies, Cinematography or photography, Strategic Communication, and so many others.”
