This course has a distinct advantage as the focus is on training students through practicals. Along with the University’s regular theory based component, JIMMC provides a three- year practical based diploma to the students who enroll in this course.
During the first year, the focus is on giving students a sound theoretical base. Second year onwards, as part of JIMMC’s practical diploma training, students are divided into three specializations: Print, Television and Advertising & Public Relations. After an initial period, which focuses on imparting software and practical training, students are required to take part in practical assignments.
At regular intervals, TV journalism students bring out their news bulletins/ feature; Print journalism students bring out their news journal; and APR students bring out case studies/ campaign ideas etc. In the process, they learn to solve the problems faced. Along with a deep understanding of Journalism concepts, this practical training prepares them better for work in the media industry.
JIMMC has well equipped studio, computer labs, and FCP lab and shooting equipment to facilitate students’ practical work. The JIMMC faculty members are highly educated, experienced and competitive in their approach. The academic calendar has ample space for theoretical grounding and practical training of the students alongside co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Guest lectures, workshops and seminars are a regular feature at JIMMC.
