MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF RESEARCH AND STUDIES
(Formerly MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY )
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 a continuous basis. The core strength of FMeH lies in providing a congenial and healthy environment to all its stakeholders: Students, Faculty, Staff & Management.
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 lecturers 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 & 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 the art television studio in the campus itself.
The core strength of the department lies in the not limiting teaching to structured syllabus but to provide practical training in all aspects of mass communication and its allied fields. It is our firm faith that value based learning can transform a student into an efficient professional and a responsible citizen
