A warm welcome to the first batch of Bachelor of Journalism students. Our efforts in Delhi School of Journalism are going to be to
create an intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers
and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. The course will create opportunities for intellectual risk-taking,
collaboration, problem-solving, and application of classroom learning to real life situations.
The curriculum emphasizes the acquisition
of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and practical training. The six-semester course of Bachelor of Journalism will equip
students to work in the industry if they so wish to exit after three years. The program is conceived as an interdisciplinary learning,
incorporating the fundamentals of social sciences, sciences, gender studies, ethics, and global issues. Apart from the regular academic
exercises, students will be required to take up internships with media houses, and research driven projects related to the media and
communication. The program includes teaching of four foreign languages (French, Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic) and two regional languages
(Tamil and Bengali) in ten semesters.
The vision of this new set up is to churn out highly qualified and well equipped journalists,
who could match the world-class journalist community and media professionals. Let us together move forward into this new venture of
the University of Delhi and create history.
