Communication -wise, we are in exciting times. Communication technology has been changing breathlessly and in the process we are changing our language, lifestyle and even thought processes. The subject Mass Communications is in great demand among the younger generation today because they live in this changing world and would like to follow it step by step. No other subject gives them a greater opportunity to understand this change better than Mass Communications. The opportunities, too, are boundless.
Karnavati University offers a newly structured three year comprehensive course on Mass Communications which will make the student face the world with full confidence, be it in the electronic media, the online ’web’ media or the traditional worlds of print and corporate communication. In media, nothing is the same today and at Karnavati, the students will feel the change.
The first two years are divided into four semesters where the students are introduced, step by step, to all the streams of media and communication – be it print, web, television, radio, cinema, advertising, public relations, events. In the third year, which is a trimester, they choose their specializations – whether it is Print & Cyber media, Broadcast Media & Cinema or PR, Advertising & Corporate Communication.
The students will be exposed to the latest technologies and softwares in up-to-date studios so that, at the end the course, they are industry-ready. They will be exposed to actual hands-on training through internships, interface with industry experts and skills certification courses. The courses are planned with utmost care so the students can satisfy their curiosity in all the latest developments in communication.
A media student here learns not just the skills, but also the ‘context’ – or the hows and whys – of communication: why media is called the ‘fourth’ estate, how to avoid ‘fake’ news, why social media has become so popular, what is the difference between digital media and the traditional analogous media, what is the next phase of the smart phone?
