The Indian Institute of Journalism and New Media (IIJNM) is one of South Asia's leading post-graduate schools of journalism and media. Located in Bangalore in the heart of India's high-tech industry, the institute offers an excellent curriculum that combines both theory and practice to prepare its graduates for positions in the media industry. IIJNM offers concentrations in Television, Radio, Newspaper, Magazine and New Media (Web) journalism. Television and Radio students produce both television and radio programs as part of their Broadcast curriculum, with special focus on their area of interest – TV or radio. Print and New Media students are required to cover both areas, with special focus on newspaper, magazine or web journalism, respectively
IIJNM is situated on 5 acres of beautifully kept grounds surrounded by rolling hills. The 30,000-sq.-ft. facility features large classrooms, auditoriums, a sophisticated media lab, library, and conference rooms. Each student is assigned a private study area with a personal computer connected to a network running powerful servers, e-mail, and high-speed 24 hour access to the Internet.
The IIJNM program requires intense study for one year, and all students must preferably stay in the college dormitory next to the campus, unless an exemption is granted. A convenient and modern residential facility is provided separately for male and female students.
Healthy climate, adequate supply of clean water, and a secure area free of pollution and noise make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. The campus is just 45 minutes from Bangalore city center, and public transport runs very frequently.
IIJNM has a record of excellent placement; practically 100% of our graduates have been placed in media organizations at attractive salaries during the past several years. Active campus recruiting is complemented by persistent contacts with a large number of media companies.
