The entire course content for Post Graduation is largely application subjects. Hence it is

subject Since our subjects are dealing with the emerging and continually developing topics,

A mentoring system where six students from a batch is assigned to a faculty, who take care

47. Briefly highlight the contributions of the department in generating new knowledge,
basic or applied.
Much of the research in recent times has been centered around theories of agenda
setting and decision making during elections. The current research of our scholars are
more in job satisfaction, family communication and educational technologies.
48. Detail five major Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Challenges (SWOC) of the
department.
The five major strengths of the department can be listed as a) Young faculties who are
ready to accept innovations in learning atmosphere and curriculum management b)
Celebrity alumni who adore senior positions in media business, ever ready to help. c) an
atmosphere and a building conducive of knowledge management d)different forums
and conferences that has already become a part of our academic structure e) regular
placement programs which never leave any talented student devoid of a qualified,
rewarding job.
The weaknesses can be listed as a) space crunch in the building for providing class
rooms and studio facilities to all b) lack of senior professors and dependable permanent
teachers to guide us in case of bigger confusions c) a strict academic schedule that
won't leave much space for extracurricular activities d)University’s decision to give
emphasis to open source software has resulted in a difficult situation for the department
as much of these said technical sessions and practical are dealt with in more
professional Windows and Apple platforms, which are more popular in the industry.
This has resulted in the need for earmarking more amount for purchasing and
managing softwares or to depend more on educational, limited support versions. e) Less
time to earmark for time consuming practical sessions like that of Mutimedia and Video
production
The Opportunities are that a) being the front line department in the media studies field,
the industry still have belief in our grooming and looks forward to us b) timely change
in syllabus have helped us to suit perfectly for the demands of the industry. c)With the
posts of senior faculties expected to be filled soon, the department is sure to be in the
lead for years in providing quality media education. d) There is still no institutions in
the state for the government and associated machinery to look forward to when taking
crucial decisions related to communication e)With our new studio and associated
facilities coming up, we are sure to contribute more finely tuned individuals to
Television and New media which are of more demand now.
The Threats include mushrooming of new institutions offering same courses with less
quality content and facilities which may in future bring down the expectations on the
course, ever changing professional scenario in communication industry, outsourcing
contract and exploitation which are becoming commonplace, and unexpected
diversification of the discipline with unlimited technological encroachment.
49. Future plans of the department.
10
The department is planning to start more one year diploma courses on various aspects
of media studies. This will give opportunities for others from the industry and those
who haven't bee able to qualify the entrance tests to learn the basics. The department is
planing to maintain them in the self financing mode without creating any financial
liabilities to the University. The department will equip itself with a full-fledged studio
with all video recording, news reading and editing facilities in a shortwhile. The plans
of the department to start a Campus FM Radio Station will also be given high priority.
