The School plans to have the flollowing specialization in near future (i) Broadcast Journalism, (ii) Print Journalism, (iii) Online Journalism, (iv) Advertising & Corporate Communication and (v) TV Production.
The programme aims at helping a student evolve into a professional who is capable of meeting not only the current needs of the industry but also what the industry and society would need in future in view of the dynamic local and global environments. Having given an overview of the industry and its professions and also trained into basic content and technical skills, she is required to do Case Method studies to have a hands-on experience in the domain of her choice and finally come out with a substantial research work on the given subject.
