Course programme

This intellectually demanding course comprises two types of lectures:
The first helps students understand different aspects of their future profession. Subjects include the role of journalists in society, the ethical decisions they are called upon to make, the value of media diversity and pluralism, the effects of concentration of media ownership, and the impact of technological change.
The second deals with substantive issues of current relevance. Distinguished journalists and academics address, among other questions, issues relating to the Indian Constitution and political system, India's relations with its neighbours and the world, important aspects of international relations, and key challenges facing the country, such as the struggle between secularism and pluralism on the one hand and communalism and religious fundamentalism on the other. Non-Indian students are encouraged to apply this learning and these insights to their own societies.
