National Universities Commission (NUC) has split mass communication into seven new departments which are:
- Development Communication Studies,
- information and Media Studies,
- film and
- Multimedia Studies.
According to the body, Mass communication is still very much available as a degree programme. What we just did was to unbundle the programme into seven other degree courses to provide more opportunities for students to study beyond mass communication.
The universities now have to maintain their mass communication programme as a course and as well begin other courses in advertising, broadcasting, cinematography, Development Communication Studies, information and Media Studies, film and Multimedia Studies.
All Jambites should take note of this while filling Jamb registration form.
