The programme aims to answer to a gap in the market for a media and journalism degree that places emphasis particularly on the African context. At the same time, it will give students the skills and knowledge to compete favourably in a global media context, where the hunger for previously untold stories from Africa is intense. The department envisages that students armed with this degree should be able to market their skills not only regionally but also to global media houses.
5 credit passes in GCE Ordinary Level examinations including English Language and at least 2 passes at Advanced Level in English and a pass in any one of the following subjects History, International Relations, Law, Sociology, Geography, Human Resources, Environmental Studies, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, Marketing, Computer Studies and Religious Studies.
