The Bachelor of Journalism and Media Technology Degree (Revised Curriculum, 2021) has replaced the Bachelor of Journalism 
and Media Technology (Old Curriculum, 2015) Degree currently registered on the NQF. The programme has been revised to ensure 
its continued  relevance,  as  well  as  full  compliance  with  the  Curriculum  Framework  and  National  Qualifications  Framework 
(NQF) requirements.

In  keeping  with  the  NUST’s  requirement  regarding  curriculum  development  and  review,  the  degree  programme  has  been 
benchmarked against similar degree programmes offered at local, regional and international partner institutions. The Bachelor 
of  Journalism  and Media  Technology  is  revised  to  address  the  ongoing  need  for  qualified  personnel  in  both  the  public  and 
private  sectors,  as  confirmed with stakeholders during consultations. These include not only the  official  Programme  Advisory 
Committee (PAC)  members,  but  also current and former students, as well as informal consultations with key Namibian media 
organisations.  Additionally,  the  programme is  revised  to  ensure  continued  relevance  and  fit  for  purpose  in  accordance  with 
the  NQF  requirements.  Graduates  of  this  programme will  be  able  to  contribute  significantly  to  the  attainment  of  national 
development objectives in the economy by taking up relevant jobs in the public and private sectors of Namibia. Graduates will 
also be prepared to create jobs by setting up media ventures or operating as freelancers.
