Course programme

The Journalism diploma programmes of IIMC are a unique blend of theory and practice. The basic idea is to develop a critical insight into political, social, economic and cultural dimensions of contemporary issues and to impart training in journalism, keeping in mind the larger perspective and social commitment of the profession. The course not only produces skilled sub-editors and reporters , it produces journalists who have the capacity to react to events and developments in the larger interests of the society. Our students of journalism in IIMC are given an understanding of social dynamics and are encouraged to develop a deep interest in social history. Efforts are made to generate an awareness of major public debates on matters of polity and economy.

The Post Graduate Diploma Course in Hindi was launched in 1987 to meet the ever increasing requirements of rapidly expanding Hindi media. India's newspaper revolution of the 1970s and the massive expansion of Hindi news channels added new dimensions and values to the journalism course in Hindi. The journalism courses of the Institute are common in terms of imparting basic news writing and reporting skills and developing an understanding and insight into media and its role in enhancing public knowledge on current and contemporary issues and trends. It was felt that the Hindi media in the country has some special features that needs attention. The Hindi journalism course is designed to meets these needs. It is a total package in media and communication, in addition to catering to the specific needs of Hindi media.
