ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

The Programme

The Diploma in Broadcast Journalism programme equips students with knowledge and skills of news gathering, writing, reporting, filming and editing to produce news, news magazines, documentaries, and other non-fiction broadcasts for the electronic and digital media. The curriculum, designed to produce highly skilled broadcast personnel for the industry, combines both the theoretical and practical applications of broadcast journalism. The Diploma in Broadcast Journalism students will learn through lectures, tutorials, workshops and actual on-air duty in the radio and television studios of the University College.

Students also have the opportunity to learn the ropes of the profession from industry experts who are invited as guest lecturers. Apart from exposure in producing on-campus news and non-fiction radio and television programmes, the 10-week industrial training stint at radio, television and cable networks and stations will make the students industry ready when they graduate from the Diploma in Broadcast Journalism course.
