NSU to introduce Media and Journalism course from fall 2022
For the first time, North South University (NSU) is introducing a Bachelor of Social Science in BSS in Media and Journalism (MAJ) program from the upcoming fall semester, beginning the last week of September 2022. With this programme, NSU envisages producing highly-skilled and a talent pool of smart young journalists to meet the demand of national markets. NSU's newly-introduced MAJ programme will also create opportunities for students to work with international media outlets such as BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera, and so on. There is also the prospect of pursuing higher studies abroad to become media scholars in the field of journalism, film studies, TV and radio production, social media analytics, data driven journalism, digital storytelling, politics of algorithms, fake news vs real news, games studies, advertising, PR and the like.
Equipped with the global standard curriculum which has recently been endorsed by University Grants Commission, this new MAJ course of NSU will impart hands-on practical and theoretical education in the ever-changing challenging media environment of Bangladesh.
While online and digital skills are the order of the day in the media industry all over the world, NSU's MAJ programme will be no exception. Its state-of-the art digital lab and campus radio and TV set-up will allow students to learn and practice freely and joyfully. This programme will be run by a group of distinguished faculty members holding PhDs in Journalism, Media Studies, Cinema and Culture Studies, from North America, Europe, Japan and Australia. These faculties have authored books and research articles, published in prestigious journals, such as Springer.
Aspiring students will also benefit from rich experiences of theory and practices as some of the faculty members are former journalists and have experiences of working in diversified communication sectors.
The NSU MAJ programme will surely attract deserving students to take-up this BSS Course.
