Triple Major (JPEng)
A unique blend of three domains studied for a duration of three years allowing students to get a commendable insight into the respective fields and offers an opportunity to the students to enrich their learning curve.
The beauty and speciality of the triple major is the weightage the other two subjects offer to the students. While English strengthens the language skills- written and spoken-Psychology instills in students the prowess and acumen required to understand human behaviour; enabling students to become enlightened and capable media professionals.
The Journalism course is aimed at giving the students more than just an overview of the subject; it intends to make the students ready for a career in print journalism and related areas. There will be eight core papers in journalism, covering a broad spectrum of areas of journalism and mass communication. It also will have a parallel set of certificate courses aimed at more specialized areas and skills. The theory papers will aim at making the student aware of the field. The practical and skill-based papers will go a long way in equipping them for the job. It is seen that a broad-based knowledge of the various subjects gives a journalist the perspective in understanding the issues and writing intelligently and in the proper context and right perspective for the lay readers.
Psychology is one of the major subjects offered at the undergraduate level as part of the triple major programme. It is a three year full time course aimed at introducing students to the fundamental processes underlying human behavior and familiarize them with a few emerging fields and branches of psychology such as Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Industrial Psychology & Consumer Behaviour, Health Psychology and Positive Psychology.
