Mass communication is all about communicating to a large number of people using the various forms of communication like print, broadcast, multimedia. Multimedia journalism is hugely popular these days, because it is the age of the internet. Our course curriculum would teach every student how to deal with a professional life and environment in the media industry. Journalism involves collecting, verifying and reporting news. We teach our students all of these skills and also teach them the values that every journalist today should have. We also teach interested students the skills involved in making documentaries. These documentaries can be about environmental, social and other issues or even about wildlife and cultures. Documentaries are a good way to inform the public of things they may not know about and provide them with an in depth knowledge on the subject matter.

The faculty at our university is very committed to growth in journalism and keeps the course and curriculum up to date with the latest developments and technologies. They combine traditional methods of teaching with modern methods using a perfect combination of textbook knowledge and lectures with e-learning and smart classes. Our aim is to keep the students updated with all of the developments in the world of journalism, as having good journalists is more important now than it was before. Journalism has always been a very popular career choice for students, given how interesting it is. A journalist’s role is more towards society than it is towards themselves. A student goes for a future in journalism when they have a passion to bring about changes to society. It is a noble field and we try our best to ensure that every student understands the values and ethics of journalism.

Our university is fully equipped with the best infrastructural facilities and a library with every book one would need to master journalism. There are practical sessions and workshops to ensure that the students get a hand on experience into what journalism is actually like. This helps to prepare them for a thriving career in the media industry.

We also understand that not every student is quick to grasp concepts. Just for this reason, we have remedial classes after regular classes to ensure each student gets an equal chance to learn. These classes give individual attention to every student and are open to all students who wish to have their doubts cleared. We also provide the students with counseling sessions and grievance redressal.

More than this, students are trained in their interview skills so that they are prepared to get the best job opportunities that come their way. The university also provides placements and is associated with some of the best companies in the industry.
