Message

from the HOD

There’s hardly anyone who can proclaim to be leading an unmediated life. The omnipresence of media in our lives is uncontestable. The volume, velocity and variety with which media content impinge upon our senses and our consciousness on a quotidian basis creates variegated impacts. In such a complex media-saturated world, the role of media educators is immense.

The Department of Media Studies at CHRIST, with a deep awareness of the enormous power that media wields in our daily lives, operates with a few key objectives. One of the prime aims is to produce media leaders of tomorrow who as lifelong learners, would offer a plethora of media services, matching to professional requirements and ethical norms. To aid in the production and dissemination of media-centric knowledge that respects pluralist and democratic ethos is a commitment of the Department.


To realise a media literate society, the Department offers various capacity-building workshops and programmes for the different stakeholders of our community. In our complex media-saturated world, the role of media educators is immense. With its resourceful and amiable faculty and robust academic systems, we work towards making media education rigorous, meaningful and joyful.
