Overview of Curriculum

The program leading to a Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism (PGDJ) builds on the student’s background in liberal arts, the sciences, law or other disciplines. During a full academic year, students work in a practical media atmosphere through their assignments in reporting, writing, editing and using presentation tools. Teacher-editors who have also been or still are working journalists critique individual assignments and closely supervise the students’ production of the in-house newspaper, magazine, web publication, television, and multimedia programs. A Graduate Diploma in Journalism (GDJ) for students with PUC/12th standard has similar aims, but at an easier/lower level of difficulty. Compare IIJNM curriculum/course offerings to those of any other institution, and you will discover the real difference in the superior quality of our program.

The programs consist of concentrations in Broadcast journalism (Television or TV Documentary), Print journalism (Newspaper or Magazine), and Multimedia journalism (Online and Convergence).
