LCJ offers a diploma with specialisation in four streams under its one year programme – Television, Print, New Media and Radio.
This diploma course offers the chance to develop skills and knowledge in two or more related fields of study at the intersection of media, business, design and new communications technologies. It offers a contextual study of the history, theory, ethics and criticism of the various practices, institutions and discourses in media, communication and information. Foundation skills and knowledge for work in the corporate media and information field is provided with a considerable breadth of expertise.
In this year, SLCJ upgraded the curriculum with subjects which are more updated with modern journalism. In the first semester, all students, irrespective of their chosen medium, are taught the basics of Broadcast, Web and Print. From the second trimester onwards, students learn reporting in their choice of medium. During the second semester, there will be some common courses and some stream-specific courses. This semester will be when students begin to focus on their chosen streams. The bulk of work during the third semester will be dedicated to stream-specific skills-oriented work. At the end of the year, SLCJ exposes students to the internship to media institutions.
