The department grew further under the leadership of the two successful Principals Dr. P. Parvathi M.Sc., M.Phil., Ph.D and Dr. C. V. Mythili M.Sc., M.Phil., Ph.D with the needed basic infrastructure. The first batch came out in flying colours with five gold medals in the university level and hundred percent of pass results.

This course focuses on Fundamentals of Journalism, History of Journalism, News reporting, News editing, Writing for media, Basic writing skills, Advertising, Public relations, Radio Journalism, Broadcast Journalism, Online Journalism, Media Law and Ethics, Sports Journalism, Science Journalism, Media Culture and Society, Media Management, Development Journalism etc.,
