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
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.
