Local and International Co-operations /Partnerships

The Faculty has established two strong partnerships with Linnaeus University which is found in Sweden. The first partnership came into existence a couple of years ago with the undergraduate of Journalism and Communication Program. Teaching staff exchanges from both Universities have brought valuable experience sharing and mutual professional development. The second partnership came into existence in December 2011. This partnership was established in a bid to strengthen the PhD in TEFL Program that the Faculty launched two years ago. The collaboration between the two universities is expected to bring new understanding in teacher professional development through mutual support and staff exchanges. Moreover, the Faculty has a long cooperation with the Amhara National Regional State Mass Media Agency. The Agency provides hands-on professional practice to our Journalism and Communication students every year.
