Makerere University has today Tuesday March 30, 2021, trashed over 18 top core courses from its curriculum.
The announcement came through the University Vice Chancellors’ office in a document dated 25th March 2021.
The University says that the listed fabled undergraduate programmes have phased-out and will not be advertised for the academic year 2021/2022.
It also notes that move follows the university council‘s approval of re-structuring of certain undergraduate programmes.
Below is the list of the restructured programmes:
* Bachelor of Library and Information Sciences
* Bachelor of Archives and Records Management
* Bachelor of Science in Construction Management
* Bachelor of Community Psychology
* Bachelor of Industrial and Organizational Phycology
* Bachelor of Arts in Development Economics
* Bachelor of Science in Telecommunication Engineering
* Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
* Bachelor of Environmental Science
* Bachelor of Science in Meteorology
* Bachelor of Development Studies
* Bachelor of Adult and Community Education
* Bachelor of Business Statistics
* Bachelor of Science in Population Studies
* Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Economics
* Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Health and Management
* Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Land Use and Management
* Bachelor of Science in Horticulture
The principals of colleges are reminded to submit curricula for the re-structured programmes for consideration by Senate as soon as possible and in any case not later than 15th May 2021.
This has raised a major concern among the alumni and interest figures of these scrapped courses around the world with majority condemning the move by the University.
