JOURNALISM AND MEDIA STUDIES

About Department of Journalism

With the rapid expansion of the print and electronic media as well the phenomenal growth of the internet, social media, PR, advertising and the information industry over the past two decades, Bangladesh is at the middle of a media boom. There is an equally growing need for producing better quality journalism and media graduates to feed this booming industry.

Succeeding generations of young men and women aspiring to take journalism, media and PR as a career, must receive the right kind of education and training at the right institutions. Stamford University Bangladesh has been mindful of this need and the founding of the Department of Journalism and Media Studies in April 2005 marked an important event in the history of journalism and media education in the country. The department is an exciting academic enterprise. It is a pioneer in private sector journalism education in this country and truly means a great deal to those students who enroll here to build their career and character. Its overall goal is to promote and elevate the standards of journalism and media education. Our program is rigorous and compelling for those who want to pursue BSS Honors and Master’s degrees in Journalism. Both the Honors and the Masters program are tailored to meet the needs and demands of present-day journalism and media education.

The options to choose from when it comes to higher education in Bangladesh may seem many but few are on par in quality and history with Stamford.

 

 

Message from the Chairman

With the above background, it is my great pleasure to extend a hearty and warm welcome to prospective students to the department of Journalism & Media Studies at Stamford University. Starting as a small academic enterprise in the Summer of 2005, the department has developed into an institution of quality and distinction.
Although the Department is still evolving, I am tempted to tell prospective students and their parents that the path the Department needs to be on has been well set; we are firmly footed. We have set both the tone and the direction. All our efforts and energies are directed to take the Department to new heights and make it shine; attain respectability and be in the academic spotlight. I have come to believe that this is a wonderful department for students to grow up, learn, build their career, character and personality. Our faculties are sensitive to the academic and professional needs of the students.
Beyond studies we try to foster a deeper appreciation of everyday human virtues. We teach students to become good, kind, loving and caring human beings. We tell them not to be impatient with life. We tell them to conduct themselves with grace and a high degree of responsibility. We try to give a whole new insight into the way they will face life.
We strive to make Stamford Journalism & Media Studies Department credible and responsible to society. It is not in our policy to put a positive face on an unworthy institution. Experience tells us that no institution can sustain a reputation that is not deserved. We want to earn a reputation that is deserved and we want to earn it through our genuine concern for quality education. We pride ourselves on our declared values of commitment to quality and reaffirm our pledge to remain relevant and competitive. Welcome, again.
