Department of Mass Communication
“It is our knowledge about ourselves, that gives us a sense of humanity”.
The knowledge understanding of our social, political and economical, situations and relations is very crucial in order to sustain peace and prosperity unhurt. But what is its use if it remains canned or worse if it is used in a harmful way?
We live in a world where communication is of the essence and getting information to the masses in a correct manner is one of the most important sort of communication. Specially in this era of social networking, though getting such information conveyed has become a lot easier, but getting it conveyed the right and honest way has become that much more difficult.
Understanding this, Babu Banarasi Das University (BBDU) has its own and independent School of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Master’s course here aims at making the students comfortable with the practicality of the responsibility that they would be taking over and pushing them towards making the world a figuratively cleaner and better place to be in!
Students are encouraged to stretch beyond the conventional business school program, excel in the fast-paced global economy, solve problems creatively and build consensus across diverse groups.
