Journalism is central to everyday life. From the radio or print media to social media, journalism has grown as a socio-cultural and political institution that can connect as well as influence the masses. Journalists conceptualise stories, report them, and help shape the way we see ourselves and the world. The art, craft, and power of storytelling requires that journalists be observant and creative, be it in the sports stadium, the war zone, or in the streets. The steady rise in content consumption by the people has led to a growing demand for journalists, particularly in India. As such, journalism studies is steadily emerging as a sought after academic discipline.

The programme includes a unique variety of papers, an industry benchmarked curriculum, along with a comprehensive and contemporary learning pedagogy. The real-world focus and interdisciplinary nature of the programme prepare students for a variety of academic and industrial endeavours.
