NUC Splits Mass Communication Into 7 Departments

The NUC has unbundled the department of Mass Communication in tertiary institutions in the country and this has led to some questions as as to whether the department has been scrapped or not.

In a bid to clarify the confusion that greeted the recent unbundling of Mass Communication as a course in Nigerian tertiary institutions, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has said that the course was not scrapped but only broken down into seven units.
