The National University of Samoa is expanding the Media and Journalism course to a Bachelor's degree in 2018.

The journalism course started as a certificate programme, then was upgraded to a diploma and next year it will be degree programme.

Samoa's Journalist Association or JAWS says the move is in recognition of the important role the media now plays in everyday life in Samoa.

Its president Apulu Lance Polu spoke to Moera Tuilaepa-Taylor about the move.
