Does OAU Offer Mass Communication? Real Answer!

JAMB logo
In the bustling year of 2019, news buzzed around that Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in Ile-Ife had snagged the golden ticket to offer Mass Communication. The affirmation came straight from the horse's mouth – Mr. Biodun Olarewaju, the University's spokesperson, confirmed this exciting development via telephone.

But a curious twist awaited us recently. A student, filled with anticipation, reached out to me to inquire about OAU's Mass Communication offering. Without skipping a beat, I confidently assured her that yes, indeed, OAU did offer Mass Communication.


Armed with this assurance, she dashed to a CBT center to maneuver a university switch and embrace the Mass Communication path.


Imagine her surprise when the CBT center unveiled a different narrative – OAU, they declared, had no Mass Communication course in its repertoire. Utter confusion ensued. Naturally, the student circled back to me, her beacon of information, seeking to untangle this perplexing web.


With her curiosity piqued, I embarked on a journey of investigation, determined to unveil the truth behind OAU's Mass Communication stance. Here's the scoop on my findings:

OAU's Accreditation Adventure: A Closer Look

Casting our minds back to 2019, OAU was given a resounding nod of approval to don the Mass Communication hat. This was no mere rumor; the university earned its stripes in offering this coveted course.


To affirm this, a simple flip through the school's official brochure suffices – there it is, Mass Communication, snugly nestled among the list of courses.


However, a prickly question looms: If the course was given the green light, why was it conspicuously absent from the JAMB platform for the ever-crucial registration and change of course process?

The JAMB Conundrum: Searching for Clues

The jigsaw pieces get even more perplexing. The school's freshly minted brochure for the 2023 admissions cycle gleefully displays Mass Communication as part of its curriculum offerings.

But a baffling discrepancy arises when one compares this to the JAMB brochure – alas, Mass Communication is nowhere to be found on the OAU list.

Mass should be here on the JAMB brochure but it's not.

So, what's the hitch? What's causing this conundrum?

Temporary Setback: The Dilemma Unraveled

The crux of the matter seems to point toward a potential setback. It's plausible that OAU has hit a temporary stumbling block in its pursuit of Mass Communication glory.


Contrary to popular belief, the mere presence of a course on a university's website or brochure doesn't necessarily guarantee its availability during JAMB registration or the subsequent course-changing frenzy. 


In essence, if you can't cherry-pick a course when navigating JAMB's labyrinth or changing your academic destiny, that course remains tantalizingly out of reach.


UPDATE: OAU Mass Communication now restored to the JAMB brochure. Available information traced the temporary omission back to JAMB's fault. It's a mere technical issue instead of the earlier assumption. 


Here's the catch: Before you can even consider marching ahead with that course during the post-UTME/screening phase, you must first select it during JAMB registration. It's the golden ticket that grants you entry to the ride.

The Verdict for Now: Mass Communication's OAU Absence

In light of these revelations, it's safe to conclude – at least for now – that Mass Communication is a menu at Obafemi Awolowo University. It's like a tantalizing dish that's still a culinary offering.


But hold onto your hats, because the plot thickens: Things could shift, the tides might turn, and Mass Communication could very well make a triumphant comeback to OAU's roster. And rest assured, if and when that happens, I'll be the first to sound the clarion call and update this post.


So, if you're on the edge of your seat, eagerly awaiting news on OAU's Mass Communication status, I've got a tip for you: Keep a watchful eye on the official JAMB brochure. It's like a treasure map that could lead you to the answers you seek.
