 The Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, SRM University, has actively been bringing out Spectrum, the fortnightly campus newspaper and is now looking to extend its presence on the Internet through this blog, Twitter and Facebook.

The department, which has been functioning for over 4 years now, is working toward producing world-class journalists and media personalities. The students are given ample practical experience through internships, workshops, seminars and symposiums.

Headed by Dr Sridhar Krishnaswami, the department has trained a group of Sri Lankan journalists, to help them face the changing media scene internationally. Students from the MA and BA programs have represented the university in countries like America and Japan, as a part of the Semester Abroad Program.

In 2009, a symposium on 'Development Communication' organized by the department, was a roaring hit, with speakers from all parts of the country addressing the student participants on some of the pressing issues in the media. Taking that success forward, this year, we are organizing an International Symposium on 'The Changing Face of the Media in an Era of Globalization and Information Technology', with speakers coming in from across the globe. As part of this online venture, we will be providing live coverage of the inaugural and valedictory sessions as well as the panel discussions.

Please do follow us for further updates on this blog, you can also catch us on Facebook and Twitter at Srm Jmc and @srmjmc respectively!
