Course Detail

The BS (Honors) Media Studies program is designed to provide students with strong grounding in, and a broad academic base for, pursuing a professional career – institutional or entrepreneurial – in the wider field of media and film arts.

The curriculum seeks to endow students with creativity, and deep insight into the world of media and visual communication, through an array of courses in journalism, communication and social sciences, as well as practical hands-on exposure to the art and craft of film-making for television, and new media content creation. It strengthens their prospects in a world where multi-platform communication and multi-format journalism are becoming the norm.

The program owes its success to the support it has received over the years from media experts and practitioners, specialists from the field of journalism and film-making, who still make up the bulk of our department’s teaching faculty. We have also benefited from the collaboration received from other institutions, and media organizations.

The four-year program requires completion of 144 credit hours of course work, and a compulsory 6-week internship.


The Media Studies Department has state of the art facilities to allow students to work in a practical environment. Industry level equipment and facilities are provided to students to aid in their learning. Students can use any of the equipment and facilities for their projects.
