The need for Media and Information Literacy Education is critical in digital age, especially when people are increasingly vulnerable to disinformation, misinformation, hate speech, and diverse digital risks. This study specifically looks at the case of Egypt because qualitative academic research into Media and Information Literacy (MIL) curriculum development is limited in the country. Therefore, drawing on Tyler’s model of curriculum development, this study explores the key gaps in the curriculum development of media and information literacy at the higher educational institutions in Egypt in four key areas including: objective planning, students’ learning experiences, organization of these experiences and overall evaluation of MIL courses. In doing so, this study uses the qualitative method of in-depth interviews and offers a deductive thematic analysis of findings.
