In a world swamped with TRP ratings and seven-second sound bytes, is Print relevant any longer?

Mumbai alone has seen five new newspapers in the last couple of years. Add several niche magazines and you’ll realize that the written word has never been as relevant as it is today.

More than ever, newspaper professionals must consistently demonstrate the qualities of precision, accuracy, speed, fairness, understanding and public responsibility. Students of Print Journalism gain these skills through a blend of theoretical and practical courses and workshops.

Whether it is newspaper, or magazine journalism, students learn reporting, editing, page design and newsroom management. They use popular software to produce newspapers and magazines on a regular basis. The Institute seeks to prepare them to step into the nation’s newsrooms. Teaching methods include lectures, case studies, seminars with guest speakers, individual assignments and workshops.
