New Delhi: Delhi University (DU) is all set to begin its “Delhi School of Journalism” offering a five year integrated course in journalism from September 26. The students will be admitted to the course, through a national level written test, which will be conducted by the varsity. However, those students who secure 50 per cent in class 12, irrespective of the streams, will be eligible to apply for the entrance test.

While the online registration will begin from August 23 and continue till September 8, the entrance test will be held on September 17.

The syllabus is designed as per the CBCS (choice based credit system) scheme and the five year integrated programme has 28 core courses, two ability enhancement compulsory courses, two ability enhancement elective courses and dissertation as per UGC guidelines.

The programme includes teaching of four foreign languages-French, Spanish, Chinese and Arabic and two regional languages — Tamil and Bengali in ten semesters (a student is to select one foreign language and one regional language).

The course is designed with equal weightage on classroom lectures (50 per cent credits) and assignments/projects and internship (50 per cent).

“The programme will be taught in two mediums i.e. offering instructions in both English and Hindi and the learning process will be adequately supported by a state of the art media lab cum studio,” an official release said. 

“The entrance test will examine the candidate’s proficiency in general knowledge and current affairs and analytical and comprehension skills. The entrance test will be designed with the comparable standard of competitive exams at the national level for class 12 students,” it added.
