B.Sc. Film and Multimedia Studies


B.Sc. in Film and Multimedia Studies

The undergraduate programme in Film and Multimedia is aimed at developing creative, competent, responsible, and ethically minded film and multimedia professionals, who will be conscious of their unique cultural role as regards the creation of content and who will strive to contribute to societal progress by transmitting the most positive and enduring values through their work. The programme, therefore, will uphold and impart to the students the intellectual, ethical and professional values that promote creativity, responsibility, respect for the common good, and best practice. The overall intention is to nurture individuals who are creative, professionally competent, enterprising, and zealous for the common good with the ability to make free and morally upright decisions, and who can thus impart positive values in service to society.

The programme will provide intensive practical and theoretical courses that encompass all key aspects of film and multimedia production. It will emphasize particularly the need for high ethical standards in the exercise of professional work and obligations. Hence, the curriculum will be suffused with courses that deal with human values, analytical and critical thinking, and the appropriate use of communication media.


Candidates for the undergraduate programme shall be accepted at the 100 level, for a four‐year programme, and in 200 level as direct entry applicants, for a three‐year course.

Admission into the programme, at the 100 level, will ordinarily be based on the candidate’s performance at both the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the entrance examination of the University. In addition, the candidate should possess passes at Credit level in the Senior Secondary Certificate (SSC), or its equivalent, in five relevant subjects, including English Language and Mathematics, in not more than two passes.

To gain admission into the 200 level, the candidate, in addition to passing the evaluative test of the Pan‐Atlantic University, will need to possess either Two ‘A’ level passes in Arts or Social Science subjects or a tertiary level certificate such as NCE, OND or HND. The direct entry level candidate must also possess five credit level passes in five relevant subjects at Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE), which must include Mathematics and English Language.

Inter-university Transfer Requirements

Important Notice:

Pan-Atlantic University is open to offering admission to students who wish to transfer from another institution of higher learning. However, applicants should be aware that only a few transfer applicants are offered admission each year, and only if they can show clearly that, because of their past performance, demonstrated values, and experiences, they are likely to make a significant contribution to Pan-Atlantic University.

Accordingly, we seriously advise transfer applicants to apply also to other universities, as there is a significant risk that they may be denied admission to Pan-Atlantic University.

a. A transfer student must be a current student of the university from which he/she seeks to transfer and should have a clean disciplinary record.

b. A transfer student from a Nigerian University is required to possess a JAMB score that is not less than the minimum score of PAU students admitted into his/her intended department in his/her admission year or the minimum JAMB score as approved in the year of admission into the university.

c. A transfer student should possess the minimum Pan-Atlantic and inter-departmental entry requirements and should have obtained these before entry into the university from where a transfer is being sought.

d. A transfer student shall make a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50 on a 5.00 point scale to qualify for consideration into 200 level.

e. The application should be accompanied by the student’s transcript, which will be verified.

f. If at any stage irregularity is discovered in the papers presented by the students, such students shall be withdrawn from the University.

g. A student can only transfer into the same course of study – or a similar course where applicable – that he/she was engaged in previously in his/her original university.
