Message from Head of Department

It gives me immense pleasure to lead the Department of Communication and Media, we are keen on providing a media education program that both responds to market needs and rhymes with academic standards. This program offers three concentrations in journalism, advertising in addition to an area in general mass communication. 

Our versatile & experienced faculties play the role of a mentor and transforms a normal student into a professional (mass communicator). We facilitate students in stimulating their creative urges, keeping in mind the creative nature of the Media industry. We offer our students a technology-driven professional environment.

Hope the department under my guidance succeeds in producing young professionals with an attitude and ability to bring about a positive change in society.
