The mass communication discipline is unique because it provides a focus for convergence of technologies. Its uniqueness naturally defines its role and dictates its increasing relevance in several disciplines and modern practices and techniques. The scope of application of mass communication in the modern scientific and technological context is, therefore, infinitely wide. Students are equipped in the Department and are thus encouraged to function, research and engage in collaborative projects in wide professional contexts. Mass communication was one of the courses established at the inception of Federal Polytechnic Oko. It became an autonomous full fledged department in 1996 and has since then grown very rapidly. The department was established to teach courses leading to the award of the OND and HND in Mass Communication and took off with 60 pioneer students in 1992. It graduated its first set of students in the 1996/97 academic year and new sets has graduated annually ever since.
