Message From Dean

“Building independent media in developing countries requires more than freedom of speech, skilled journalists, or strong business management skills. It takes a lot of individual courage and the right amount of ethical and professional mix. And with the bombardment of information in the current age and time, the role media need to play becomes even more crucial as well as challenging. We at the Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication work dedicatedly towards creating tech-savvy media professionals having knowledge and intent to serve society as well as excel in their field of expertise.”
