DEGREE IN JOURNALISM AND MEDIA PRODUCTION (PUNE)

This program is SBL enabled.



Why study journalism? Why make a career in this subset of mass communication? What can I do after a degree in journalism? Well, ask the writers, reporters, anchors, photojournalists, executive producers, feature directors, editors, voiceover artists, radio jockeys, documentary filmmakers, content creators, correspondents, photographers and countless other professionals in the industry and they will tell you how getting a journalism degree was perhaps the best decision of their lives.

Journalism has played a massive role in our society since the days of print journalism. Then came the radio, the television and now the almighty internet – the journalism world has been continually evolving with new technological advances. And while the primary role of journalism was to keep the public abreast with all the news and current affairs around the world, there is so much more to it.

Print journalism is basically any journalistic material in the printed form (newspapers, magazines, etc.), while its modern counterpart is called ‘Broadcast Journalism’, which makes use of electronic technology to disseminate news, information and interesting content (radio, television, digital platforms that use the internet, etc.).

Whether it is watching news bulletin in the morning, following the hottest debates at primetime, or keeping abreast with all the happening around you on your smartphone’s news feed, our need for information is greater than ever. Today’s journalists need to keep up with fresh new tricks and twists so that their stories reach their audiences as quickly, accurately and as imaginatively as possible.

Our Broadcast Journalism degree course not only imparts the technical skills that are needed to reach out to audiences via a variety of mass media like, TV, radio, video, and the internet, but also teaches our budding journalists to wield their influence wisely and ethically. In a world driven by all things digital, we emphasize on equipping our students with key skills that they need in order to thrive in the broadcast space. Our broadcast journalism degree course bodes well in the modern journalism arena (compared to regular mass communication courses) since it focuses on internet, television and radio journalism as opposed to traditional print journalism.

The scope for broadcast journalism in our country (and abroad) is huge, and while we focus on the broadcast specialization, one can take up any role in the journalism industry subsequently, since our degree course is all-encompassing in nature. So whether you want to be a news anchor, newspaper editor, creative content writer or web journalist, Seamedu’s degree in broadcast journalism is all you need to get started. In fact, you can even enter the print journalism industry after a broadcast journalism course!

As one of the leading journalism colleges in India, Seamedu offers a highly specialized Broadcast Journalism degree course in Pune to educate enthusiastic young people into becoming proficient and principled journalists in an era of digital journalism.

What is the scope of journalism as a career?
There are opportunities in alternative media and on other digital platforms as well. Journalism has numerous career choices and has huge scope to suit your capabilities and interests. Graduates of the broadcast journalism course can find careers as reporters, correspondents, anchors, bulletin producers, production executives, video journalists, cameramen, video editors, sub-editors and photojournalists, to name a few. The media industry is a rapidly growing one.There are more than 300 news channels 24 hours on air, and they need skilled and talented manpower.
Is better to major in broadcast journalism or print journalism?
In this digital era, it is essential that you equip yourself with all-encompassing knowledge and modern-day skills in order to survive and thrive in this challenging industry. While print journalism courses focus only on the print medium, a broadcast journalism course is all-encompassing. It not only helps you specialize in the ‘broadcast’ aspect (internet, TV and radio), but also covers all bases when it comes to the basics and history of journalism. This way, once you graduate, you can take a call on which area you would like to build your journalism career in. Many of our alumni are working in the print journalism industry after studying our broadcast journalism course, so you aren’t really restricted by the specialization as such. In fact, it helps open up more avenues in the field.
What are the career opportunities in the field of Public Relation and corporate communication?
There are opportunities in various private companies including IT companies and government departments as corporate communication officials. There are various fields for PR who work specially for politicians, celebrities, finance among others.
What is Data Journalism?
Data Journalism is all about going through the vast data in the form of numbers and filtering it. The relevant data is scrutinized, processed, and visualized in story format to explain it to your audience.
What is the difference between mass communication and journalism?
Mass communication is the process of transmitting a message to the general populace through varied media like newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and the internet. It involves media theories, media research, advertising, public relations, media history and management aspects as well. Journalism, on the other hand, is a subset of mass communication that involves the compilation and transmission of news through these mediums. Journalism education is directed towards creating well-rounded professionals who can take on different roles and responsibilities including :
Writer, reporter, photojournalist, anchor, news presenter, correspondent, feature producer, creative writer, interviewer, cameraperson, director, editor, documentary filmmaker, radio jockey, promo producer, etc.
What facilities do you provide?
We provide our students with all the necessary equipment to learn the skills necessary for their respective fields like cameras and multi-cam setups, editing software, professional shooting and recording studios, etc.
In which types of media organisations do you provide placements?
Seamedu students are encouraged from day one to develop a network for knowledge sharing and future growth prospects. We help our students with placements in news channels, with newspapers, news portals as well as more offbeat organisations like documentary production companies, film production houses, etc.
What is anchoring?
Anchors are considered ‘the face’ ofa news channel.They anchor news bulletins, conduct panel discussions and interviews, and deal with breaking news. News anchors should have strong journalistic skills. Respected anchors inspire trust within their audiences and can often hold a great deal of influence over them. News anchors work from the studio or may travel to do on-site or live reports and feature stories as well. They can also work erratic hours to conduct research or to be at the scene of ground-breaking events to report them as they occur. News anchoring, news casting, special show anchoring, panel discussion anchoring and interview anchoring are some subsets of this career.
What is Reporting?
Reporting is basically gathering news and verifying it for telecast. Reporters have to compose and structure information in such a way that viewers will receive and understand it easily. Reporters analyse and deliver newsworthy stories through different forms of media so that the viewers can be aware of and understand important events as they occur. Correspondents research various stories, topics and may also interview people for a detailed analysis. Reporters can also specialize in a particular news beat such as Crime, Sports, Entertainment, Business, Politics, Science and Technology. A reporter’s job involves travelling to various places for news coverage.
