NUC unbundles Mass Communication Degree into Seven degree awarding programmes while making Mass Communication to become a Faculty.

The seven new Programmes/Departments, to be domiciled in a Faculty of Mass Communication are:

1. Journalism & Media Studies

2. Public Relations

3. Advertising

4. Broadcasting

5. Film & Multi-Media Studies

6. Development Communication Studies

7. Information & Media Studies

This is a great news...better professionals will emerge from 2025!

NUC splits Mass Comm., 3 other degree programmes

The National Universities Commission (NUC) says it has unbundled Mass Communication into seven separate degree programmes to meet present demand.

The Commission also said that degree programmes in Agriculture, Architecture and Creative Art have also been split into different ones, with the changes expected to take effect in this year in all universities in the country.

NUC’s Executive Secretary, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, who made this known to newsmen in Abuja, said Mass Communication has been unbundled into Media Studies, Public Relation Studies, Cinematography, among others.

He said the present Agriculture degree programme in the universities is now broken into Forestry, Soil Science, Plant Science and others.

Prof. Rasheed, who dismissed news making round in some quarters that the Federal Government has abolished catchment area as part of criteria for admission into Nigerian universities, said peddlers of such information probably misconstrued the government decision to ensure more national spread of students in all federal universities.

The NUC boss lamented the behaviour of some communities who always want to flood institutions located in their area with their kith and kin, “saying our universities are being dangerously localized”.

On the reports of over 100 fake professors in Nigerian universities, the NUC boss confirmed that there were fake professors in the system but said he was yet to get the real figure.

Speaking further, the NUC boss revealed that there are about 61,000 lecturers teaching in Nigerian universities while only about 10,000 of them are professors.

Rasheed said institutions like polytechnics, colleges of education, inter-university centre as well as research institutes cannot produce professors as only the University’s Senate has the power to promote academic staff to the professorial position.

He expressed worry over the upsurge of illegal degree-awarding institutions, saying the Commission is compiling a comprehensive list of such illegal universities and working with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to ensure that graduates of such institutions and other fake universities from nearby countries are not mobilised for the one-year mandatory service.

I wanted to ask the same question.

But, Theatre Arts an extension of or alternative to Mass communication? No. It can and will never be. Theatre Arts is a world on its own. As listed above (with reference to Masscomm), Theatre Arts has very numerous arms and each arm is elaborate and interesting. That's why Theatre is always called a synthesis/complexus of many Arts.

It's only in Theatre Arts you will be doing history, classics, Masscom, Linguistics, English related course. Of you can't endure, theatre isn't for you

This is how my next life will be.

Go to primary school And then Secondary School. After which I hustle and gain grounds/make sources of income. Even though it takes 20 years to achieve that.

Finally, I go to the University.

Nigeria have a massive breeds of Tech Professionals who are capable of grabbing the Internet by Storm.

Name them Programmers, Hackers, Freelance Specialists, Online Marketers... etc

Too bad, we lack a working system... a system that will expose our talents, skills, innovativeness, capabilities to the world.

After all, Nigerias are viewed as Scammers in the World,
why can't we change that? Can't Nigerians become the best Online Marketers in the World?

Yes we can, but it takes individual efforts..
