Journalism programme offered by DSJ has a practical emphasis; students learn journalistic skills such as reporting a speech, presenting a radio news broadcast, interviewing a celebrity, and preparing a layout in screen. The curriculum includes coursework in media skills, mass communications, and general studies. General studies dominate the beginning of the studies as an overall basis for socio-political orientation and for linguistic skills. Media practice becomes more dominant and merges with theory-related studies in thesis/project work. Journalism students are responsible for all aspects of producing DSJ Magazine, the campus newspaper.
