Responding to the professional challenges of the journalism industry, the AJK MCRC started a P.G. Diploma course in Convergent Journalism in 2005. The enthusiastic response to the course, led to its being converted into a two-year Masters programme in 2007. Through an integrated programme in Print, Broadcast (Radio and Television), Online, and Photo Journalism, the course seeks to produce skilled and trained journalists, for all the four streams of journalism as reporters, news writers, copy editors and producers.
Students are expected to envelop an international perspective through student exchange, study abroad programs and pre-professional training experience. The graduates of the course are expected to distinguish themselves by their professionalism and a commitment to media ethics, social concerns and issues of human rights and civil liberties.
