INTERNSHIP & PLACEMENTS
The College of Journalism and Mass Communication (CJMC), Dayananda Sagar University (DSU), places placements and internships on high priority.
The exposure to industry and real life work through internships provides students not only with a glimpse of what the industry is like but also gives them crucial clues to what they want to do or do not want to do after their degrees. To a great extent, they decide what they want to do and where they want to be placed during their internships. Some of them get job offers at the place of internship.
The work experience they gain is good learning as it helps them become much more confident and they return wiser after internships. The stint in industry also changes their attitude and interest towards academics within the classroom.
The college provides internships to students in their Fourth Semester (Second Year) and helps with placements once their degree is successfully completed.
