What is Mass Communication? Why do candidates prefer Mass Communication as their preferred choice of course? is it the passion for the course or the intentional evasion of some subjects that involves calculation? what are the JAMB subject requirements for studying Mass Communication? The above questions are still lingering in the minds of many till date and we shall answer them all in this post.
Truth be told, most students choose courses based on the subjects requirements, information gotten from people as regards the schools that offer the course, peer pressure and based on their parents insistence on offering a course liked by them (Parents or Guardians).
In the quest to evade any subject that involves calculations, many student look for courses like Mass Communication, Sociology, Law and some Art related courses that do not require mathematics, Accounting or Economics and they select them as their preferred choice of course during their UTME registration. Would we then say they are passionate about the chosen course? Though this does not apply to all students as some have flare for this course.
Since Mass Communication involves imparting or exchange of information on a large scale to a wide range of people in such a timely and amazing speed, the practical method involved in this process is quite magnificent therefore making it one of the best and most sought after courses under faculty of Arts.
Day in day out, both students, parents and guardians are constantly online searching for the best universities for studying Mass Communication in Nigeria so they can enroll their wards and based on this, we decided that it would be worthwhile putting up a very comprehensive post that contains the list of all universities in Nigeria currently offering Mass Comm as a course of study in Nigeria.
Aside checking for universities that offer Mass Communication as a course, you must know the correct O’Level and JAMB subject combination for studying Mass Communication because in the past, candidates who have ignored this move were either forced to change their school or lost out on the admission for that academic session.

The above list is a mixture of private, state and federal universities that offer Mass Communication, this means candidates can make a choice from the above. Most often, it is easier to study the choice of your course when you select a school that is within your Catchment area so please take note.
For example, candidates who is from Delta state and selects Mass Communication in UNIBEN stands a greater chance of gaining admission to study the course than a candidate who hails from Taraba or Kogi state. Many students make the mistake of just selecting randomly without applying the Catchment area principle though this does not apply to Private Universities.
In summary, if you must select a state or Federal university, choose a university that falls within your catchment area for you to stand a huge chance of studying Mass Comm or any course of your choice.
