Journalism and a one-year postgraduate diploma course in Cyber security set to establish in Delhi University. Delhi University’s Standing Committee on Admission Friday gave permission to establish the School of Journalism and Cyber security. It will come into effect from the current academic year, if it got approved by Academic and Executive Councils (AC & EC).
School of Transnational Affairs, a virtual portal where academicians of different fields across the globe can interact with each other has got approval from the committee.
Nachiketa Singh, a member of the panel, said, “The University is going to start a five-year integrated course in journalism, which will be known as the Delhi School of Journalism… If students quit at the end of three years, they will get a graduate degree, and if they complete five years, they’ll get a postgraduate degree”.
He also added, ““The School will have a different building, and faculty will be appointed. It will probably be based in North Campus. But for this year, it will run from a temporary location. DU is ready with funds for the same”.
On the cyber security course, Singh said, “This will be collectively offered by the Department of Operational Research, Department of Computer Science, Department of Commerce and maybe some others. That will be clearer in the AC meeting.” Singh added that the AC and EC meetings are likely to be held at the end of June. If the decisions are approved, they can be put into effect this year.
