Vision

The School’s vision is to enable its students to become the media people of the future. This requires adaptability to change over time as well as the provision of the “tool-box” necessary for life-long learning on the part of its graduates. In the light of this objective, the School offers a broad inter-disciplinary theoretical familiarity with philosophy, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, gender studies, political science and management coupled with professional specialization in writing, photography, editing, design, production etc. The faculty’s blend of academics and professionals reflects this approach and further allows for networking and placement.
