Journalism is one of the most sought after courses in Delhi University, be it an under graduate degree or as a part-time add-on course.

Thanks to the spurt of TV channels, journalism is currently hot and has almost become a mainstream career option. Five colleges in Delhi University offers journalism at undergraduate level — Lady Shri Ram, Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, Kamala Nehru College, Kalindi College and Maharaja Agrasen College.

All the colleges hold separate entrance exams for admission to Journalism (Honours). “Journalism is a very good career option these days and it is also a very glamourous job,” said Ruchika, a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Tagore Garden, who has applied for Journalism (Honours) in LSR.

However, to fulfill your desire of pursuing journalism, you will first have to cross the hurdle of the entrance exam. “We are testing their knowledge of current affairs and writing skills,” said Kanika Khandelwal, media coordinator, LSR.
