Why study journalism? Why make a career in this subset of mass communication? What can I do after a bachelor's degree in mass media? 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 watching the 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 media and journalism courses after 12th not only imparts the technical skills 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 emphasise on equipping our students with the key skills they need 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 the internet, television and radio journalism as opposed to traditional print journalism.
The scope for broadcast journalism in our country (and abroad) is huge. While we focus on the broadcast specialisation, 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 bachelor's degree in journalism is all you need to get started. In fact, you can even enter the print journalism industry after a broadcast journalism course!
