The Jindal School of Journalism and Communication (JSJC) was launched here on Thursday.
The JSJC is the first interdisciplinary school of journalism and communication in the country, which aims to train and groom the next generation of media leaders and generate a new vision on the future of democracy, the university stated in a press release.
From 2017, the JSJC will offer a three-year full-time BA (Hons) in Media and Communication programme, which is designed to give students a rigorous understanding of journalism across print, broadcast, radio and new media platforms.
It will train students to think, write, visualise, produce, edit and rewrite as journalists, editors, web editors, TV producers and anchors on global problems and issues.
Admission applications to the programme are now being accepted, and interested students can register for the programme by accessing the application form at www.jsjc.edu.in, the release added.
The JSJC is the sixth school of O P Jindal Global University (JGU), a non-profit global university. The JGU is a research-intensive university with research clusters in the form of several research centres among the five schools and currently has arrangements for international collaboration.
