The objective of Diploma In TV Journalism is to educate and train the creative talent to an appropriate professional standard for the screen presentation.

The students will be helped to develop an aesthetic appreciation of the screen as a medium for communication and prepare then to make an effective use of it. Film making and TV Programme making is teamwork and involves a huge number of working hands.
