The Radio and Television Media Programme is an honours programme studied over four years. It comprises a preparatory year and a three-year degree programme. Students are required to pass 120 credits in each of the four years of the programme.

The programme is divided into units called modules. Each module studied successfully contributes 10, 20, or 30 credits toward the degree. The credit rating of a module is proportional to the total workload and one credit is nominally equivalent to 10 hours of student effort. The 'level' of a module indicates its position in the progressive development of academic abilities and/or practical skills. In addition to presenting students with introductory modules in their discipline, the preparatory and first year programmes provide students with English, research methods, Arabic, social sciences, and basic mass communication modules. The remaining two years in the degree programme contain compulsory and optional modules all focused broadcasting journalism and integrated multimedia production.
