Alumna Speak

What Shweta (Economic Affairs Editor NDTV 24x7), has to say about the Program
(Batch of 1998)-

“When I Joined the first batch of Journalism at LSR in 1995, I was told that I would be wasting three years of my graduation. ‘Journalists are born & not made’ is what most mediapersons told me. So why on earth was I pursuing a three-year course in Journalism? Three years down the line, I realised how wrong they were.

The Journalism Course at LSR helped me get a smooth entry into the world of Journalism. The course gives you an edge over others who usually enter the profession after completing their post-graduation.”

“Its not what the course teaches, its HOW they teach it in LSR that gives you the extra edge. Journalism in LSR instills a sense of confidence to brave it through all th ehard trying times. When everything seems to be going wrong all around, it has given me the confidence to walk up and say”I surely can”.

Experience at LSR Journalism 
Excellent teaching faculty and guidance. LSR was as much about academic excellence as it was about creative brilliance. Journalism at LSR offered a great mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. We spent as much time in the college library as we did at the India Habitat Centre. Be it watching classic films, or attending workshops, interning at the best media organisations, or attempting to create our own newspaper, we did it all at LSR.
