One of the most popular universities in India
Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, New Delhi is signed as one of the most popular universities in India. It was established as Indraprastha University (IPU) on 28 March 1998 by the Govt. of NCT Delhi as a state University. 57 colleges are affiliated under this university where they serve the courses from undergraduate level to Ph.D. under various streams.
I am pursuing Masters in Mass Communication from the university’s main campus which is situated in Dwarka sector 16(C). The University's state-of-the-art Main Campus spread over on an area of more than 60 acres. From the very first sight, the campus is highly maintained when it comes to its infrastructure, in fact, it breaks all the stereotypes of the government-affiliated university campus. There are a number of blocks in the campus according to its streams and a common canteen which provides some quality food. Amul and Nescafe’s café are the cherry on the top for the youth.
When it comes to my course, talking about the pros, the first most important thing is it provides a degree. At masters level obviously, the degree matters the most in comparison to PG diploma and affordable in comparison to spending tons of money to any private institute. Second, the course structure is perfectly designed especially for those who enrolls themselves to mass communication straight after their bachelor's degree, as in the first year every sub-topic under mass communication will be taught and in the next year you can have the option to choose any of the subjects for your specialization. Being a fresher, I’ve heard that the placements are average and if you’re dedicated enough for your subject then there could be brighter chances.
I find the faculty in between good to excellent as some of the teachers are worth to attend the lectures and when it comes to masters level expectation some are not. I believe there is less exposure to the practical knowledge and activities and more of bookish and relied upon syllabus knowledge. Although there are equipped practical labs available in the department but at the end, it’s up to your interest to visit and learn about them. There is a strict rule for an attendance of 75% or else you’ll be detained for your exams but the negative side of this is at the master’s level there are lots of students who want to work part-time to gain work experience but such a rule restricts them.
In spite of the pros and cons, it is a good option to consider and I personally believe that the course itself has a very bright future.
