Overview

Our B.A. Honours in Journalism and Communication creates a vibrant space for students to emerge as the storytellers of the future. Today’s Internet Age has brought on the challenge of engaging audiences. Newsrooms are changing. Storytellers are expected to create engaging and credible content for all kinds of digital platforms in multimedia formats. We equip our students for the newsrooms of the future through studio-based production and writing. We take a liberal-arts, interdisciplinary approach. Specialisations include radio and television, data journalism, reporting climate and policy change, reporting conflict, migration, religion and caste, gender and sexuality. Students also learn to situate journalism in the overall context of media and society, where they engage with issues of trust, misinformation, and bias.

B.A. (Honours) in Journalism and Media Studies will equip students to make sense of the world around them, and will enhance their abilities to read and write critically and express themselves in various formats. The course is designed to help students acquire skills to think fast, to be accurate and fair and to understand what is important.
Our B.A. Honours in Film and New Media will incur a deep familiarity with video and film in all its genres with special emphasis on documentary or narrative non-fiction. The rise of OTT platforms has led to a proliferation of content for both, national and regional audiences, resulting in a surge of demand for filmmakers and screenplay writers. Our curriculum takes a liberal arts approach to filmmaking in a world of new media. Our students will combine their technical skills in writing, moving images and sound with interdisciplinary foundations in the social sciences. Moreover, they will learn to appreciate and engage with film through their studies in audio and visual culture. Specialisations include direction, screenwriting, cinematography, sound, editing, animation, gaming and film appreciation.
