WHAT IS JOURNALISM ?

Courses taught in Journalism and Mass Communication at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in educational institutions across India entail the study of ways and methods to collect and distribute news and create general awareness among the common public through print and electronic media. Students are taught the various ways of writing, reporting, editing, photographing and broadcasting on radio, television and the internet. Bachelor of Arts in Journalism is a 3-year programme. Furthermore, students are taken to newsroom debates as part of the audience and made familiar as to how news presenters moderate debates and present bulletins. They are taken to radio stations to get a first-hand experience of how radio jockeys present their shows. They get to train with domain experts and learn how to write and publish on the internet and run audio and visuals in such a way that makes for compelling content. You can pursue Master of Arts in Journalism after completing your graduation.
