Welcome to the Department of Journalism, Communication and Media Studies (JCMS). It is one of the youngest and fast-growing
centre for media teaching and research in Bangladesh. We offer Bachelor of Social Science (BSS) in JCMS, a four-year
undergraduate program under the Faculty of Social Science. The program is an academic, industry-oriented, practice-based
training and research. The curriculum is designed to provide our students with world-class journalism and communication
education adapted to the specific needs of Bangladesh and other countries in South Asia.
In a democratic society, news media can act as the eyes and ears of a state and society. Journalism seeks to explore what is
going on in the world beyond people's doors and tells them about it. Thus it can help to ensure and strengthen the democratic
practices in a country, and encourage ensuring a free society where there is scope for freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and
freedom of communication.
We do strongly believe that storytelling expands our understanding of shared human experience fostering an informed,
compassionate, and connected world. Moreover, it is important to grounding the future storytellers in the fundamental values
of original reporting—accuracy, verification and fairness. At the same time, they need to be equipped with an array of tools
on a range of platforms.
