The Mass Communication Department at the Uganda Christian University admits between 100-200 undergraduate students per year. The department offers a three year under graduate course leading to the award of the Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication. It offers specialized courses in television, radio, print, and public relations. In addition, the department runs a lively community newspaper, The Standard, and has a working relationship with Words of Hope, a radio ministry located on the University campus which is used partially as a training facility.


The Department is headed by Dr. Monica Chibita, who holds a doctorate in Communication. She is an academician with extensive administrative experience. The Mass Communication department has a well qualified teaching staff of 15 full-time and part-time lecturers. Faculty staff competencies are in both Journalism and Communication.

Individual members of staff have been involved in research in areas relating to the democratising role of the media, media education/training, media regulation and media, literature and film and climate change. The University has a clear strategy for building its library resources incrementally. It has access to major online resources such as Communication and Mass Media Complete.


The Mass Communication Department has recently reviewed its curriculum to clearly distinguish between journalism and communication, strengthen the students' Liberal Arts and theoretical base, as well as integrate content on emerging areas such as online and multi-media production. At the practical level, the Department has three production studios, a media laboratory with 40 computers and radio, TV and photo equipment used by students for practical training.

The University has several collaborative arrangements with Universities in the United States, Europe and different parts of Africa in key areas including:

1. Staff Exchange

2. Student exchange

3. Faculty development/training

4. Institutional development

5. Curriculum development

6. Collaborative research

Looking ahead, the department plans to develop a Masters of Arts program to address a growing demand from Ugandans to further their education in the field of communication and Journalism.
