FACULTY OF JOURNALISM & COMMUNICATION

NOTIFICATIONS

FJC ESTABLISHMENT

The idea of having a Media Education institution was strongly mooted and the Faculty of Journalism and Communication was set up in the M. S. University of Baroda in 1992. It initially offered a one year post-graduate Bachelors in Journalism and Communication Programme (BCJ), which five years later, in 1997, was replaced by a four semester Masters in Communication Studies (MCS) programme.The nomeclature of this programme has been recently changed to Master of Journalism and Mass Communciation (MJMC).

FJC PLACEMENTS

The Placement record of the Faculty is very impressive. The Alumni of FJC, since the very first batch of the Bachelors programme and students who have graduated from the Masters programme thereafter, are all well placed professionally. The Alumni of FJC work at local, regional, national and international levels.
They have been absorbed in media set-ups or work independently in various areas-VIZ. PRINT, RADIO, TELEVISION, ADVERTISMENTS, CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS, PUBLIC RELATIONS, RESEARCH AND DOCUMENTATION, GOVERNMENT AND NON GOVERNMENT ORGANISATIONS, ACADEMICS, CONTENT WRITING, FILM MAKING, and PHOTOGRAPHY .  

FJC ENDEAVOURS

The Faculty strives to help students cultivate a holistic perspective and understanding of communication processes by arranging seminars and workshops wherein media applications interface with subject areas such as Gender, Disability, or HIV-AIDS, Science and Technology, Environment, Distance Education, Food And Nutrition, Children’s Issues or any other. Interaction with Visiting Faculty, invited guest speakers, and experts from mainstream media from within India or from abroad also helps students to widen their information base and gain new and interesting insights.

Moreover, though there is no formal Alumni Association yet, there exists a student club called “Bodhivriksha” through which current and former students of the Faculty network and try to be mutually helpful to each other. They also “get together” in groups on social networking sites and occasionally host media and other events.
