PG Diploma In Communication And Journalism


Overview

The Indian education scenario of the 21st century is a basket full of professional courses and Media is one of the specialized courses gaining vast popularity among the new generation young, irrespective of gender, in the Country.

Media being one of the most creative, adventurous and booming sectors, the faster growth and wider scope in the industry has led to the growing attraction of Communication and Journalism courses in India.

The last decades of the 20th Century has witnessed a phenomenal and unprecedented explosion in communication technology and mass media. All boundaries of space and time, as well as, national and social boundaries have been transcended, and the entire world has been unified into a global community, thanks to IT and Mass Media revolution.

Not long ago, people with good communication skills and a degree in literature were considered fit for journalism and other areas of mass communication. However, with technology playing greater role in our lives, all professions related to mass communication now require skilled professionals who can work faster and more efficiently.

Journalism is today concerned with the broadcasting media, such as, TV and Radio, the Print and Cyber. And Journalism covers a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches involving the humanities, the social sciences and others.

Mass Communication is not limited to journalism alone. To a great extent mass media is a modern reality which covers all aspects of human life. Professional Communication has its role in many areas today, which constitute the different sections of communication, public relations and broadcasting.

Even though with the proliferation of blogs, it is commonly claimed that ‘anyone’ can become a journalist, a keen examination of facts proves that only those with professional training make the grade.

Doing a course in mass communication requires a lot of skills such as creativity, imagination, spontaneity, innovation and flexibility. Should be dynamic and possess good people skills. You should also have a way with words and excellent communication skills.

Unlike Engineering or Medical Courses there are no preparation strategies or set formulae for making a career in Mass Communication. A graduate degree in the field is good to start with, but a post graduate degree or diploma is almost essential to be considered for responsible positions in any organization.

And it is here that mass-communication, as a stream of study, and as a career, becomes gainful and covetable.

Apart from the vast scope for lucrative placements, the challenge, creative satisfaction and good remuneration package, with the added scope for name and fame, attract the enterprising, daring and adventurous young to opt for Communication and Journalism Courses.
