Media Lab

 

Department of JMC
Media, both the print and electronic is a pre-requisite for human life and social order. In modern times, social systems can only form and endure when the people are linked to each other by media. The history of mankind is replete with instances of the democratization of societies and growth of nationalism in different countries being largely contingent upon the proliferation of democratic modes of media, free expression and responsible journalism. Besides, as a watchdog, the media are not merely the carriers of messages in the contemporary world, but also mould public opinion and, if properly used, can even bring out hidden human qualities. Forward-looking journalism and committed media can also transform Bangladesh, along with many other developing countries, taking it out of poverty and ensure its economic growth with well-balanced opportunities. Media and its professionals also play a significant role in supporting democracy and people's right as well as ensuring transparency and accountability in all spheres of public affairs, which is the key demand of contemporary society. Journalism and Mass Communication, being so powerful in setting the direction of society, understandably draw the attention of many who crave for power. Therefore, the importance of Journalism and Mass Communication studies in the social dynamics of Bangladesh gets remarkable support from different segments of civil society and the masses. The Department of Journalism and Mass Communication in Daffodil International University works to fulfill its mission through providing knowledge and skills to its students and taking on the challenges of the next generation.
