Apply to Post Graduate Diploma in Data Journalism

We are a multidisciplinary school with a dynamic curriculum. Our faculty are among India’s best practitioners and scholars of journalism. They have reshaped our understanding of fields of study in their scholarship. Many have written books that are taught in schools across the country. We are supplemented by a outstanding group of adjuncts, who work at leading news outlets while teaching part-time for us.  

Our students are pioneers. They create a rich and vibrant community. They come to us with curiosity, a passion for excellence, and a commitment not just to study but to also question the status quo-the underpinnings of good journalism.   

We are a young school, but we constantly re-evaluate our course and ask whether we can do better—whether we are preparing our students today for the professional challenges they will face tomorrow. Asking ourselves that question has led to changes to our curriculum that provide our students with the skills and experiences they need to be successful in the ever-changing media.   

Our graduates will become communication professionals equipped with critical thinking, data visualisation and leadership skills rooted in a global, interdisciplinary perspective. The real-world focus and interdisciplinary nature of the programme prepares students for a variety of endeavors, with the opportunity to participate in a rigorous internship program from the very first semester.
