Welcome Remarks From The Dean

The Faculty of Journalism, Media and Communication started in 2018, growing out of the Mass Communication Department. We host the Department of Communication, headed by Dr. Angella Napakol and the Department of Journalism and Media Studies headed by Dr. Emilly Comfort Maractho.

The Faculty currently offers three programmes; a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communication, Master of Arts in Journalism and Media Studies and Master of Arts in Strategic Communication. We also offer assorted short courses for mid-career training.

We have seven full time members of staff, half of them qualified at PhD level, with several others on staff development. We also have several renowned practitioners who serve as adjunct faculty.

Our graduates serve as editors, writers, reporters, content producers and in a range of other roles in the Media and Communication industries, in government, churches and NGOs while others work as media/ communication entrepreneurs.
