History & Achievement in brief

The Mass Communication & Videography (MCV) department was founded in 1996. This course is aimed at creating media professionals who would emerge as experts with further specialization. The MCV curricula combines media theory with hands on training by a faculty of qualified media theoreticians and media professionals. 

Since 2006 (autonomy), the MCV dept. has steadily worked towards formulating a holistic syllabus for the taught course keeping the pressing needs of ‘audio- visual’ literacy in the changing times in mind. As Rev. Gaston Roberge S.J., a senior faculty member says, “The department aims to provide a milieu where the students can become not just passive consumers but also producers of media content. We would like the student to become a prosumer.” 

The members of alumni are doing exemplary work in their respective fields. Some have gone on to pursue their master’s degree in various premier mass communication institutes. Some students have opted for specialized technical courses at National film institutes, while others have found ready employment in electronic media.  

Three years full-time B. Sc. (Major) in Mass Communication and Videography (MCV, divided into six semesters) under University of Calcutta with Film Studies as one of the compulsory elective subjects.

Total students strength at present is 115 in all three batches.
