Why is it important to study Journalism?
Journalism has played a vital role in society, bringing an accurate, reliable and first hand account of the latest news stories. Most of the information that we consume and the updates that we get about different topics and trends are brought to us by journalists. Therefore it is essential to study the basic ethics and journalistic values to ensure that citizens get their authentic piece of information in the right way and at the right time.
What is Media Production?
Content is the key in Journalism and mass communication. One needs to understand the art of creating quality content in words, photos, or audio-visuals. The knowledge of basic camera operations and editing skills is necessary for generating content. Design tools and specific applications create content for different media platforms like television and digital media to reach target audiences with the desired effect. Media production considers all these aspects, from visualization to making the final product.
What is the difference between Mass communication and Journalism?
Mass communication transmits a message to the general populace through newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and the internet. It also involves media theories, media research, advertising, public relations, media history, and management. On the other hand, journalism is a subset of mass communication that involves the compilation and transmission of news through these mediums. Education is directed toward 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.

They should have a good sense of the news and the ability to interpret data and visualize the stories. There is a great demand for digital media and alternate media for young journalists.
What is the difference between BA JMC | Media Production and MAJMC | Media Production?
While BAJMC introduces students to the various fields of journalism like television, print, radio, web, and public relations, MAJMC helps students develop a critical understanding of the society for which they will be working. In MAJMC, students study the detailed tools and techniques of media production, data journalism, and media research. MAJMC also helps students choose their specialized beats of journalism and readies them for the ever-evolving media and journalism industry.
How is MAJMC Media Production different from standard MA in Journalism and Mass Communication?
