Diploma in Multimedia Journalism

The approach is dictated by understanding the requirements of companies in the communication field (Print, Online, Broadcast, Radio, Events & PR) for candidates at the entry level.

The programme is designed to imbibe in the students the conceptual framework and requisite skills to transform into a journalist, sharp enough to cut through the competition and become an asset to the organisation.

The programme recognises that the character of journalism has changed over the years. Today's journalist has to be a professional, who needs to be equipped with the right tools to succeed in a highly competitive environment.

'Content is the king' is an adage that MET follows. The curriculum is designed, not only to teach the differences in the mediums, but also to give the tools, perspectives and skills to excel in each of these mediums. The concept of content has undergone a radical change. Our functional approach, unlike that of other institutions, believes in providing students the right mix of theory and practicals enough for them to understand and matchup with the dynamics of the fraternity. Of course, the conceptual framework of communication, content and journalism will be given to the students. But more importantly, the students will be eased into the real world through India's first student tabloid - Friday, in house documentaries, on line editions, live projects, internships and finally, through the placements.
