Welcome to Department of Communication & Media Sciences
This department was established in early 2013 as Department of Journalism & Mass Communication. Keeping in view contemporary requirements, the Department was renamed as “COMMUNICATION & MEDIA STUDIES” in its first Board of Studies (BoS) meeting held on 7th January, 2014.
It trains students for career in the fields of Communication and Journalism by offering BS (Hons.) and Master of Arts (M.A.) programmes in Communication & Media Studies (CMS).
The four years BS degree programme has been prepared to provide professional education with theory-cum-research and practical based approach in everyday life-like situation and meet the requirements of relevant market and professional fields i.e., print media, electronic media, online journalism, advertising, public relations, development communication and mass media research. The courses give students a foundation in communication theories and their interrelated contexts, the application of theories to contemporary issues and the scholarly methods of studying communication & Media. To accomplish these goals, we couple practical, hands-on experience with theoretical course work and support a strong program of co-curricular, extracurricular, and internship activities to help students understand and appreciate the crucial role which Communication & Media has in our society. The Department of Communication & Media Studies provides students with the tools they need to navigate the communication challenges of the present day.
