African-University-College-of-Communications-Jobs-in-GhanaThe African University College of Communications (AUCC) is making preparations toward the introduction of Masters of Arts degrees in various programmes from the next academic year.

?The school is in the final stage of bringing on board contemporary graduate professional communication programmes to overcome communication lapses in leadership and managerial perspectives.

?The Graduate Studies and Research Programme has subsequently been approved by the Board of Management of the university to offer? Masters of Arts degrees in health communication, integrated marketing communication and journalism,? Mr. Samuel Tenkorang, Head of Department of Integrated Marketing Communications, said at the 12th matriculation of the September intake for the 2013/2014 academic year in Accra.

?The necessary preparatory work is nearly complete, and the Masters programme could be part of our offer come the next academic year,? he said.
Mr. Tenkorang said courses of study have been specifically designed to prepare professional communicators to find innovative solutions to communication problems from leadership and managerial perspectives, and that the graduate programme will provide a solid grounding in the skills vital to success in communications — with increased focus on the subjects and techniques that prepare students for the increasingly complex environments in which they are expected to work.

The programme, he said, highlights professional preparation and the ability to develop new knowledge and think strategically in an ever-changing communications environment.

A total of 300 students were admitted to pursue various courses in the school of communication and media studies, as well as the Sam E. Jonah School of Business.

Two-hundred and two students will pursue Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, specialising in strategic communication, visual communication, journalism, development communication or general media studies, while 92 will study for a Bachelor of Science in Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources Management and Banking in the Sam E. Jonah School of Business.

He said the university is continually expanding and improving on its infrastructure to meet intake demands, and that has made it possible to raise its current enrolment to more than 1,500 students — up from the 60 admitted for its first diploma class in 2002.

He called on the newly-admitted students to embrace academic and moral values to guide them into become productive men and women with the requisite skills to transform society.

?You are here to fulfil your dreams, and for that reason must be receptive to all the good things that will shape you for the future,? he advised.
