In 2011, the Department of Journalism and Communication commenced the 2011-2012 academic year with a new change in curriculum. This was a major change that affected both the department and students admitted in 2011.
For the students, it meant more course units and so they had more work to read and do.
To the lecturers, it meant teaching more classes and newer course units.
Among the changes was renaming the course from Bachelor of Mass Communication to Bachelor of Journalism and Communication with an emphasis on multimedia journalism.
The new change saw the period of study for Journalism and Communication increase from three to four years.
