Year of Establishment: 2009

About The department

Started in the year 2009, the department is named mass communication and journalism. The journey begins with only one faculty and very few students. As because this field(professional) was not familiar to the students so the number was less in the beginning. But with the passing time in the year 2010 the number of students also increased. They slowly got familiar with this professional field.

Our aims was and always is to produce good amount of students in various professional fields.

Department Notice

So, with huge amount of reporting, advertisement assignments to the students and practical work they got motivation to do more work. They have documentary film making, radio documentary, and loads of research work regarding development communication as their practical study which needs proper communication with the masses. As because this subject is fully professional based so practical work was included in their syllabus.

All these practical work are field based, and while doing these the students grew a better understanding of their surroundings as well as regarding news reporting, research work, ad making, editing, film making, PR,, news reader, acting. Again with the increased number of students, need arise for another faculty in the department. So in the year 2014 with loads of grooming sessions, extra classes, practical classes, sometimes counseling(students, & their parents) in the parent teacher meet both the students and their parents both had a wide vision regarding this subject.

The relationship of the teacher and students is like friend, philosopher and guide. The relation is very close because at times the teacher has to play the role of their parents thus not creating any barrier between the two(teacher &students). Thus the communication process goes on very smoothly between the teacher and the students, which always motivates the students to pursue their carrier in long term.

And now many of our ex students are well established in various field as reporter (ABP, Bartaman, Uttor Banga Sambad, Sun Bangla), one has his own news agency named as Press Agency, as a well versed actor, theatrical personality, ad maker, film maker(internationally approved), as a teacher, one has her own production house(malda), as medical representatives, government employee. The strength of the department is the students, and they make this field brighter with their own capability, sincerity, and immense hard work, and loads passion thus making this department a successful one and leading and motivating others in this field.

Welcome to the Department of Mass Communication & Journalism

Mass Communication is a medium of dispersing information to a large number of people. The term is not limited to only journalism but spreads its branches to various other media fields including news-gathering and reporting, film direction and production, event management, public relations, advertising, corporate communication, and the list continues.

In recent years, the field of mass media and communication has evolved into a partially interactive concept that touches almost every aspect of human life. And, with the sheer proliferation of media into our lives through newspapers, television, and internet the field of mass communication is gaining popularity like never before.
