The University of Delhi has established the Delhi School of Journalism (DSJ), keeping in view the contemporary and evolving needs
of society. This initiative will help nurture a new generation of well-trained media professionals, communication experts and journalists.
These graduates will have requisite skills to meet both the local and global challenges in the fields of journalism, mass communication
and public relations.
The University has introduced a Five-Year Integrated Course in Journalism to be offered by the Delhi School
of Journalism (DSJ). DSJ has envisaged a course curriculum that will lead to a cadre of graduates with degrees of Bachelor of Journalism
(BJ) and Master of Journalism (MJ). The syllabus of the Course has been designed keeping in mind the rigours of the subject area and
the guidelines of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the model of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO). A very able team consisting of some of the eminent journalists and faculty members with the requisite expertise in the field
has designed the course curriculum.
DSJ is also an expression of the University's response to the fact that advancement in the Information
and Communication Technology (ICT) has made the world a 'Global Village'. The media, being one of the largest information dissemination
systems, assumes a significant role in both shaping and transforming the dynamics of the socio-cultural, political, and economic aspects
of human life. A vibrant media also sustains and strengthens democratic and social institutions. The world recognizes that the quality
of the 'Public Sphere' considerably depends on the quality and effectiveness of the media - the watchdog of Democracy. Therefore,
the architecture of training and education of media professionals needs to be tailored accordingly.
We urge you to join us, in fostering
a healthy, peaceful and engrossing academic atmosphere at the Delhi School of Journalism.
