The Ghana Institute of Journalism was established on 16 October 1959 by Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana. Kwame Nkrumah had the vision to train a patriotic cadre corps of journalists to play an effective role in the emancipation of the African continent hence established the Ghana Institute of Journalism.

The school was formally called School of Journalism which was a department at the Accra Technical Institute now Accra Polytechnic. The school had Mr Richard McMillan who was then due for retirement as the Director of the British Information Services in Ghana as its first principal and journalism tutor.

Sixty Years on this Great Institute has seen drastic changes and has influenced the journalism and Public Relations spectrum.
