Communication Studies is a vocational, undergraduate degree course, introduced by the UGC in 1994 under the nomenclature ‘Communicative English’. Our objective is to train students in the fundamentals of communication – both speaking and writing.
The emphasis here is on the learning and practical application of skills. The course focuses on writing and hones the creative ability of the students to suit specific purposes. The students are trained to fine tune the use of language to suit the medium of communication and in a manner that is sensitive to the occasion and the target audience.
They are encouraged to take on industry projects and apply classroom theory to practical market needs. In the course of three years, each student has to complete at least two internships of 4 weeks each and submit a report of their work.
