Master of Arts in Mass Communication and Journalism (MAMCJ) is a multi-disciplinary course. It has been found to be very effective. The Media Industry requires young professionals who are not only well-informed and exceptionally communicative but also skilled in all aspects of media production.



Students who have completed Bachelor’s Degree level in any faculty with at least 40 percent of aggregate marks and interested in multi-dimensional aspects of mass communication and journalism can apply for the MAMCJ program in Nov/Dec of every year. The initial process includes submitting completed form and appearing for the entrance test before an oral interview. Those able to clear the entrance test and the oral interview will be selected for the program.

However, the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism is not compelled to enroll all of those who pass the entrance test and the oral interview in case of the unavailability of seats. Decision is taken on merit basis.
