The media industry has been growing at an incredible rate in post-liberal India. In accordance with this, there has been also a rising demand for media professionals throughout the country. Our own state Assam has also seen a sea-change in terms of how people are related with the media. But unfortunately, there are not enough media institutes to cater to the growing demands of the students of the state who want to prepare themselves to be future media professionals. With this avowed objective, the Centre for Studies in Journalism and Mass-Communication was set up in the Dibrugarh University, in July, 2008 with the introduction of the Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism and Mass Communication (PGDJMC) in a regular mode which continued for the first two academic sessions that is 2008 – 09 and 2009 – 10. However, as per recommendation of the Second Meeting of the Board of Management (BOM) held in March, 2010, the two years full time M.A. in Mass Communication (Four Semesters) course was introduced w.e.f. the session 2010 – 11. The provision has been kept to provide lateral entry to the third semester for the PGDJMC Diploma holders either in the regular or distance mode from Dibrugarh University or any other recognized institute or university with a minimum of 45% in the diploma which is relaxable by 5% for SC/ST candidates. The provision has also been kept to enable the students to quit the course after appearing in the second semester examination. In that case, that student will be entitled to a Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism and Mass Communication and the evaluation for that purpose will be done on the basis of the marks secured by the student in the first and second semester examinations.
