Just adding a bit more, if you want to be working in the media sector in Odisha, you should be proficient in Oriya/Odia language especially for print media. Even if your chosen language of reporting is English, if would help you communicate well and write/report if you are fluent on Odia.

Hello Ganesh, First you can go for B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication, and then Either go for PG/ Master's in Journalism and Mass Communication or Diploma in Journalism and Mass Communication... This will help you to achieve your goal toward Journalist in a Media sector.


Journalism is fundamentally founded upon standards of truth, autonomy, and transparency. Mass communication tools such as radio, TV, portable, web-based social networking fall within the purview of mass communication.


In-terms of scope too Journalism and Mass Communication is worth pursuing... All the best
