what is the difference between BJMC and BA in journalism and mass communication
See both the courses are essentially the same as per the subject is concerned. But there are some fine differences. In BA you have to choose Generic Elective for your First and 2nd year which will essentially be from any subject else. But in BJMC you will have to choose discipline specific papers which will make your foundations regarding your subject stronger. Except from that there are more seats in BA than BJMC. Apart from that the perspective you will learn in the subject is similar.

I hope my answer helps. All the very best for your future endeavors!
i completed my second pu and my aim is to write upsc exam .so Im wishing to take journalism and mass communication for my three year degree.is this helpful for my upsc preparation.
Firstly in order to appear for UPSC exam candidates need to pass graduation in any discipline from a recognized university, there is no specific aggregate required in this case, you can apply even in the final year, and you need to attain 21 years as on 1st August of the appearing year, secondly if your question is if a degree in journalism and mass communication can help you in preparation of UPSC exam then the answer is no because the syllabus of UPSC is more humanities oriented, and hence having a graduation in subjects like political science, geography, history, law, public administration, economics to name a few helps tremendously, as there is considerable overlap with general studies and optional subjects, the only difference between aspirants belonging to humanities background and those who don't is simply is that the former is already well acquainted with the syllabus having studied the subjects at 10+2/graduation level however I want to emphasize that the eligibility criteria of UPSC CSE allows candidates from every stream to appear for the exam, and if you look at the list of toppers they come from diverse background such as medical, engineering, science, commerce etc, so there is no way why you cannot succeed with your choice of degree, eventually what matters is your focus, dedication and perseverance as these are the most important traits of any aspirant irrespective of the background they belong to academically, hence it's perfectly all right if you're interested in a career in journalism and mass communication, it's good to have a back plan up also,
