The founders of the University of Nigeria believed that there was need to train Nigerians locally and in sufficient numbers for the formidable task of informing and guiding contemporary and future generations. On the basis of this philosophy, the University had as one of its original curricula, this degree in communication education.

It was hoped that graduates of the programme would be able to contribute to the development of the country through the power of the pen applied not only through the press but through the vast reaches of the broadcast media, film production and allied persuasive fields namely, public relations and advertising.


 The objectives of the undergraduate degree programme in Mass Communication are:

  1. to prepare the graduates of the department to respond to the industrial and national needs of Nigeria’s developing economy,
  2. to produce graduates who would work for and then manage media institutions,
  3. to offer training in communication skills and
  4. to expose students to a broad liberal education within the University’s philosophy of turning out the total man.
