The Indian Institute of Journalism & New Media (IIJNM) is one of South Asia’s leading post-graduate schools of journalism and media. Located in Bangalore in the heart of India’s high-tech industry, the institute offers an excellent curriculum that focuses on practice supplemented by theory to prepare its graduates for positions in the media industry.
IIJNM offers a curriculum developed in association with Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, New York. Its programs in print, television, and multimedia journalism embody the best practices in media industry and media technology.
The program leading to a diploma or a Postgraduate diploma (PGD) in journalism builds on the student’s background in liberal arts, the sciences, law or other disciplines. During a full academic year, students work in a practical media atmosphere through their assignments in reporting, writing, editing and using presentation tools.
Teacher-editors who have also been or still are working journalists critique individual assignments and closely supervise the students’ production of the in-house newspaper, magazine, web publication, television, radio and multimedia programs.
Further, students get the opportunity to intern at media organizations for between two weeks and a month. In summary, by the time the academic year ends, the graduating class is ready to hit the road running in their chosen fields – an unmatched experience among media education institutions for motivated students.
With increasing opportunities for employment in the media profession, journalism today is a preferred career choice. As an independent institution not affiliated with or run by any one newspaper or media organization, IIJNM is able to maintain wider association within the industry. With assistance from the college placement department, our students have access to most media organizations for employment opportunities. In the past, practically all our graduates have received one or more job offers from media related organizations at attractive salaries.
IIJNM is situated on 5 acres of beautifully kept grounds surrounded by rolling hills.
The 30,000-sq.-ft. facility features large classrooms, auditoriums, a sophisticated media lab, library, and conference rooms. Each student is assigned a private study area with an internet-enabled personal computer.
The IIJNM program requires intense study for one year. A convenient and modern residential facility within walking distance of the college helps our students maximize their time spent on constrictive learning activities.
A secure area free of pollution and noise makes the stay comfortable and enjoyable. The campus is just 45 minutes from Bangalore city center, and public transport runs very frequently.
