Journalism is the activity of gathering, assessing, creating, and presenting news and information. Basically, writing about recent developments. Mass communication is the study of spreading information to a large audience through various means of communication. If mass communication is the activity of dispersing news, journalism is concerned with the collection and dissemination of news through print media as well as electronic media. In recent years, the field of mass media and communication has evolved into a partially interactive concept that touches almost every aspect of human life.
The career opportunities in the media industry have seen an exponential growth over the past two decades. Many of our students used to get absorbed into traditional media organisations earlier. In the past one decade, many are venturing into digital media as well. Some of our students have got placed in Odia and English print media, publishing houses, FM radio, TV and web news channels, corporate companies, digital media, PR firms, advertising agencies, production houses, developmental organizations like NGOs, CSOs and donor agencies, media schools etc. In addition to on-campus and off-campus placements, a lot of students get absorbed into the organisations where they head for their final semester internships.
