About Us

Jindal School of Journalism and Communication (JSJC) is envisioned as a world-class institution that offers opportunities for education, research and capacity building in media and communication studies. 

Our graduates will become communication professionals equipped with critical thinking and leadership skills rooted on a global, interdisciplinary perspective. The real-world focus and interdisciplinary nature of the program prepares students for a variety of endeavors, with the opportunity to participate in a rigorous internship program from the very first semester. Over the first two years students train in the foundational areas of journalism and communication studies through core courses and electives from both the JSJC and other schools at JGU. Students also complete internships during each semester break. In the final year, students will write a thesis as an area for concentrated study. In other words, the final year thesis for the B.A. (Hons.) is a detailed work of substantial length and depth over a specialised subject, duly approved and advised by JSJC faculty.

The core course, Journalism Skills I, II, III and IV, covers the basics of journalism applicable to all media: how to do research; how to write a lead and structure a story. The programme is aimed at encouraging students to think beyond deadline and to give them practice in reporting, writing and producing.

The faculty constantly reviews and refines the academic programme responding to the ever changing demands of the world of news and communication.
