About Us

It was a modest start with diploma in journalism back in 1962. Gradually the Department of Journalism expanded its academic programme; the graduate programme was started in 1967 and the undergraduate in 1977. Over the years by overcoming setbacks the Department grew into one of the leading Departments in the Faculty of Arts and later in Social Sciences. The breadth and depth of the course curricula necessitated a new nomenclature of the Department. It turned into the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism.
