Pedagogy & Research
The work at our institute straddles both realms; facilitating synergy between research and training. We not only promote critical thinking and research in journalism and media study but also ensure maximum practical exposure.
Teaching Methodology: In addition to classroom studies, we leverage holistic learning through educational tours, outdoor shoots, parliament visits, and live interviews of parliamentarians, celebrities, and public figures. Fundamentals are taught in such a way that students become more confident and field-ready after every new lesson. Studying at HIMCOM is all about the combined efforts of teachers, students, and guest faculty.
Training and development: We give special emphasis on the practical implementation of various rules and concepts through group tasks and case studies. Self-assessment using individual assignments is also a regular practice here. Students take frequent lectures to hone their computer and language skills in labs and social classes. The live studio exposure is another remarkable feature to improve students’ presentation skills. And, in all the media and journalism courses at HIMCOM, industry experts conduct interactive training programmes to accentuate the students’ personality.
Industry Interface: In foundation classes, every other week a known iconic face from media industry not only comes to interact with students but also gives them the first-hand knowledge of the most recent trends in the industry. Students get a fair chance of interviewing them as well as learning from them. HIMCOM leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the best in class education for its students.
Research: Research is important in every field to make innovations and authenticate the previous studies. Here, we encourage students for experiential learning under the guidance of seasoned professionals. Our faculty members update themselves on both technological and academic fronts to bring out the best in students. Media is the field where achievements do not come without a sound knowledge bank, hardcore ground research and deft technical skills. Whether it is videography, anchoring, editing or reporting – everything is interconnected and, of course, everything requires research. Students receive proper training in elementary research methodologies and work upon live projects along with case histories to keep them updated about the latest trends and practices. Evidently, we enable them to confidently build their own industry-ready portfolio.
