BACHELORS OF SCIENCE IN MEDIA SCIENCES (BS-MDS)


The curriculum of BS-MDS has been designed keeping in view the emerging trend in which media plays an important role in nation building and cultural perseverance. "Media" includes all forms of representational media (oral, written, visual), mass media (print, television, radio, and film), new media (digital multimedia and the Internet), their associated technologies, and the social and cultural institutions that enable them and are defined by them. The program will prepare students for careers not only in media and communication but also in diverse professions and business fields.
