Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu and Yogesh Kumar Tyagi, the chancellor of the University of Delhi, inaugurated the Delhi School of Journalism (DSJ). “The Delhi School of Journalism is the most recent addition to the rich academic legacy of the University of Delhi. Establishing this exclusive journalism school is an obvious sign of institutional growth and maturity. I admit that it is a proud moment for me too, as the chancellor of this university,” he said.

The course offered at DSJ integrates both graduate and post graduate programmes. In other words, both Bachelor of journalism and Master of journalism will be offered to students. The very structure of the five-year integrated programme in two languages – English and Hindi – will enable students to have an in-depth understanding of the media landscape and acquire professional skills in media and communication.

“Journalism is primarily a public service. Though it opens lucrative career opportunities, it is ultimately a ‘unique vocation’ to serve the truth. Hence, we can say that journalists constitute a ‘special breed of professionals’. The attributes like the ‘Fourth Pillar’ and ‘Watchdog of Democracy’ enable the Press and the journalists to assume certain extraordinary privileges in terms of ‘respect in the public’, ‘access to the corridors of power’ and ‘opinion leadership’ etc,” stated the Vice President.
