It is unique and refreshing! A career as an Agri-Journalist! The Post-Graduate Programme in Agriculture Journalism and Mass Communication (PGP-AJMC) at manage, Hyderabad, is specially designed for the young, promising agricultural graduates to groom them as Agri-Journalist/ Corporate Communicator. The first batch of this course will be passing out in the month of November, 2003.
In a country like India, where two-thirds of the population depend on agriculture and one-fourth of the country’s GDP is contributed by agriculture, it is very upsetting to note that the coverage of agriculture in the media including print and electronic is less than two per cent. Driven by this fact, this course is launched to enable agriculture graduates with knowledge and skill to perform roles in the mass media as competent and committed journalists and corporate communicators.
Having tasted the success of the two-year course for agriculture graduates on Agri-Business Management which was also the first of its kind in the year 1996, we are sure the Agriculture Journalism course would trigger lot of interest. The unique features of this course are:
First of its kind in the country-launched in February 2003
Recognised by the Ministry of Agriculture-Government of India
Stringent entry and multi-stage selection process including in-camera screening.
Best teaching resource roped in from the country-60 per cent of input from Academics and 40 per cent from Media Professionals.
One year full residential programme.
Apart from the usual media and communication courses in print, radio and television, the speciality courses on WTO and Agriculture Scenariio, Indian Agriculture Policy, Corporate Communication Technologies-viz-VSAT, DVB-RCS, Community Radio Technology and IT-related courses become part of the course curriculum. Intensive project work including production of newsletters, films and field projects with media houses and two study projects, become part of the learning event for each individual student. In addition, media events, agri-journalist meet and knowledge series lectures add value to the learning of the students.
