JOCOM@30: Celebrating Growth and Advancement

Celebrating 30 Years of the Department of Journalism and Communication, College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS), Makerere University, Kampala Uganda

For the last 30 years, the Department of Journalism and Communication at Makerere University has been involved in the training of a critical mass of journalism and communication professionals. Over the years, we have expanded our academic programmes from bachelors to masters and doctoral degree awards. We have also been involved in cutting-edge research and publishing in the fields of media, journalism and communication as well as community outreach. We are currently one of the recognised UNESCO Centres of Excellence in journalism training on the African continent. Many of our alumni continue to serve at national, regional and international levels and have greatly impacted the journalism, media and communication industry.

DJC is set to commemorate ‘30 years of advancing journalism and communication professionalism’ through a series of activities.  One of these is a public lecture on Thursday 26th September 2019, at 9:00am at Makerere University. The keynote address for this lecture will be delivered by Dr. Rioba Ayub, a proud alumnus and current Director General of Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation on ‘Journalism and Communication Education in the Era of Privatisation, Commercialisation and ICTs vis-a-vis African Democracy and Development needs’. This is open to the University community and the public.
