Media in India has played a crucial role in our development as a society. The free press continues to exert influence as they inform and educate us.

However, there is a growing concern about the deteriorating ethical & professional standards in media today and about the under-representation of women and marginalized communities in media houses.

With the 24/7 news cycle and proliferation of fake news on social media, there is more need than ever for trained journalists to produce quality content.

If you have a strong desire to cover current events and trends while communicating with the public, this is the course for you.

Our Journalism program is designed to help you start your career as a reporter, whether you are a new student or someone with a degree in a different area who is shifting career goals. Instructors with real-world experience will teach you theoretical and practical skills that will enable you to seek entry-level employment in news and feature writing for newspapers, magazines, community journals, websites, radio and television.

Take the first step on the path to your new career and enrol in the Journalism program.
