History of the Unit

In 1961, history was made in sub-Saharan Africa when a Department of Mass Communication, then known as the Jackson College of Journalism, was established at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka “with virtually a complete North American style school of Journalism curriculum, including heavy doses of advertising, public relations and so on. The initiative to set up the department was that of the founding father of the university, the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the doyen of West African journalism. With the establishment of the department, the dream for the formal educational training for journalists and would-be journalists became a reality.
