Post Graduate Program in Mass Communication

Academic Plan/Instructions

The PGP in Mass Comm course will begin in the first week of July and September, 2016 and end on May 31, 2017.

    We will have three academic sessions

  • July - 2018
  • September - 2018

    The academic session is divided into two terms:

    For July Batch
  • Term: July - December
  • Term: January - June

  • For September Batch
  • Term: September - February
  • Term: March - August

The first term will broadly concentrate on providing students the conceptual inputs and on acquisition of the skill needed for Broadcast Journalism. The second term will be mostly devoted to honing of these skills and giving the students a practical exposure to various aspects of the functioning of media.

Evaluation will be done partly on the basis of testing in theory and partly on the basis of practical work done. Each term will have such evaluation and the credits will be aggregated. A student will be expected to gain a minimum of 40% marks in each paper (both theory and practicals).

To help them relate the learning of concepts with practice, students will be attached to a media organisation for internship in the month of May. Each student will be expected to submit a report to the Institute on his/her internship experience. Internship is mandatory, without which the diploma will not be awarded.

Each student will be expected to attend a minimum of 75% of the classes including the practical sessions.

Computer literacy is an essential part of the course. The Institute has a well- endowed computer room in which word processing, make-up, graphics and other computer skills may be learnt. Students are expected to be proficient in typing, a basic skill-set that comes handy when they later take up jobs in the media sector.

The Institute will organise a series of Special Lectures by experts in various areas of current affairs to update and improve the students’ awareness and understanding of political, economic and cultural trends in society. Eminent media persons and academics drawn from various prestigious institutions will deliver them. No separate credits will be awarded on the basis of these lectures.

Students must submit their assignments in time. Non-compliance of deadline will be treated as indiscipline.

Students are expected to go through the Code of Conduct for students issued by the Institute and must follow it in letter and spirit.
