The Faculty of MCFA has structured the programs for all the majors in line with the highest standards of learning objectives that are adopted by a modern university.
All majors offered by the Faculty consist of four types of courses where each one of them is credit based and bounded by learning objectives and outcomes with a set of assessment methods.
The BA degree requires three years of full-time study or may be studied for up to six years part-time. The degree has already a compulsory credited professional placement.
Year one of the major includes level one courses (Code 200) that lay the theoretical, linguistic, numerical and practical foundation for the study of communication and media-related majors.
Year two of the degree includes level two courses that engage students further in the professional side of discipline while enabling them to pursue a range of intellectual, historical and practice-based studies. By the end of year two and depending on the study route considered, students will have the opportunity to select an extended work placement option.
Year three of the degree includes level three courses that involve students completing an independent project, either a written capstone project or a media production project and select from a variety of advanced module options.
The Faculty offers a range of courses that touch on key challenges in the mass communication and media industries. Each course instructor will advise you on the best combination of courses at level three that will allow you to place you confidently in the right career.
It should be noted that there is some form of a flexibility of enrollment in mass communication and media majors for a degree. It is important that you consult the Faculty Assistant (or alternatively Admissions and Registration Department) in order to identify the availability of enrollment in spring and /or summer semesters.
