Department of Journalism & Mass Communication is one of the youngest family members at Govt. College for Women, M.A. Road. In a short period of time, the department has been able to carve its own identify at the campus. Since its inception, the aim of the department has been to equip the undergrad students with necessary skills and experience to serve as a head start in their pursuit of a successful career in media. Our core courses, combined with innovative electives, have been designed to provide proper orientation to the students before they venture into the field or go on to pursue further studies.
Internship is an essential component of any journalism course. At our department, we send students to different media organisations for internship. The aim is to prepare them for the media industry by providing not only on-the-job practical experience, but also the opportunity to cultivate professional contacts. It also enhances job prospects of students after graduation.
Besides, in the last semester, the students pursuing the course need to create multimedia packages- combining text, video, audio and graphics- on current issues and emerging trends in contemporary life.
We also keep inviting experienced media professionals to interact with our students on various relevant themes. Sharing their experiences, our guests look to encourage and inspire the students.
