Television journalism is the latest buzzword. The huge popularity of TV journalists like Christiane Amanpour and Barkha Dutt is one reason. So if you want to learn how they made it big then Delhi University's Indraprastha College for Women is the place to head for.

Unlike other DU colleges that offer Journalism (Honours), IP offers Bachelor of Mass Media and Mass Communication, which is mainly a electronic journalism course. "Unlike the degree courses offered by other colleges, our course is geared more towards TV journalism. We are the only college with our own audio-visual studio, which has all the latest equipments and software," said Manaswani Yogi, coordinator of the mass communication course.

The college imported audio-visual equipment worth Rs 2 crore in 2003 with the help of a grant from the government under the Japan Debt Relief Scheme. "We have upgraded our facilities since then. We started with four video cameras and now have a ten camera set up and 15 editing suites. Our students work with the latest software," Yogi said.
