Broadening horizons for communicator
In the era of information explosion and extensive media expansion, it has become mandatory for media institutions to realize their responsibility towards the media industry and society. The dynamism and growth of media industry has brought in new avenues in the field of media, thus making it obligatory to be specialized, learned and conversant with the profession and practice in media education.
The Department of Communication and Journalism started in 2003 with its core programme Masters in Communication and Journalism providing specialization in different media sectors. Now the department provides five full time Masters programmes in specialized fields of Communication and Journalism, Public Relations, Electronic Media, Television Studies and Film Studies. We are also a research center for Masters and PhD Programmes.
Our courses are felicitated by National Education Awards and recognized by various media houses like State’s language leader ‘Lokmat’ and National news channel ‘ABP News’ as an institution that provides industry related curriculum.
We believe that it takes just a spark to ignite the possibilities. Thus we help students who have an inclination to be potential media professionals by providing hands on experience in their field of interest. We develop a sense of entrepreneur spirit in students thus creating job givers rather than job seekers. The success of alumni students is a reflection of the hard work and commitment of the staff and students themselves.
