Message

from the HOD

The world of media and journalism is ever-changing, fast-paced and dynamic. In order to keep up, the teaching and learning in these fields also needs to constantly adapt. We as a young department take pride in making conscious efforts to keep ourselves abreast with these developments and prepare accordingly. It is a formidable challenge, but a challenge that we are prepared to tackle head on as a team.
Since its inception in 2016, the department (then known as the Media Studies Cluster as a part of the School of Business Studies and Social Sciences) has continuously endeavoured to rethink the topics and modes of learning. Starting this year, we function as a department as part of the School of Arts and Humanities. The department strives to provide opportunities to the students to apply classroom acquired knowledge in real-world contexts. With these, we are sure that we will foster journalists and media professionals who are rooted in democratic values and are more than capable to face new challenges with integrity.
