Traditionally known as Mass Communication, we have made some major tweaks to the course to allow students to train both as journalists and multimedia experts so as to respond to the new trend of convergence journalism.
The Journalism and Multimedia course teach students how to craft compelling news stories and incorporate multimedia elements.
The students will be equipped with the skills needed to deliver engaging content for today’s quickly changing media landscape where team members are expected to have a versatile and holistic skill set for print, broadcast and online reporting.
Over the course of two years, Digital Media students will learn how to create news for digital platforms, print, radio, and television; operate industry-standard audio-visual equipment; and, artfully use multimedia elements to increase engagement.
Africa Digital Media Institute (ADMI) students gain a competitive edge over their peers by earning Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certifications in:
