Faculty of Media Studies & Humanities (FMeH) aims at imparting quality experiential education in order to cater to increasing demands of the Media industry. At FMeH, we take up challenges that come with the existing as well as emerging corporate, academic and literary environments. Constant teaching, updation and training in new media tools is taken up on continuous basis. The core strength of FMeH lies in providing a congenial and healthy environment to all its stakeholders: Students, Faculty, Staff and Management.
It is our firm faith that value based learning can transform a student into an efficient professional and a responsible citizen. It is in this backdrop that we strive to help our students claim their rightful place in the communication world that is fast turning into a global village. There is a great saying, ‘Communication rules the world’. Here at FMeH, we strive to inculcate, apart from structured academic learning, the habit of developing inquisitives and effective communication skills among the students.
FMeH conducts workshops on various aspects of broadcast journalism for both programmes of B.A and M.A-Journalism and Mass Communication. Keeping in view the current technology trends, innovations in journalism and up to date workflows for news television, these workshops cover reporting, anchoring, breaking news, news production and the role of a producer, different departments of a news channel, writing for television news, the newsroom scenario, operations-live PCR/ camera/ editing/ technical overview of modern television newsrooms and Digital Media.
Apart from the workshops, short term training courses during summer break are offered free of charges to students. In order to develop a research mindset amongst the students and provide practical training, media tracking on topical issues is done under the guidance of faculty. Guest lectures from experts are arranged for students on weekly basis so as to expose students to the best in the media and the industry. Students are encouraged to work for regular in-house publications like “Campus Buzz” and the “Reporter” so as to give them an insight into reporting, composing, layout designing and printing. This is done on rotation basis amongst students so that all the students have first hand exposure to printing technology and desktop publishing. Students are also involved in writing press releases and reporting for various events like conferences and conclaves. Training in preparing, editing and delivering news bulletins is provided with the state of art television studio in the campus itself. Two new courses are being offered by FMeH from year 18-19 onwards the details are in subsequent pages.
