Dear friends,

This is to inform you that the last date for application for the Post-Graduate Diploma in Community Media has been extended from Aug 7 to Aug 16. All other dates remain the same- the programme commences on October 8, 2012. The programme is being offered in modular form (6 weeks + 8 weeks in Oct-Nov and April-May) to enable employed candidates to enroll. While the medium of instruction is English, we will in practice try to make the programme as bilingual as possible (English and Hindi).

The course is designed for social workers, community activists and cultural organisers who are engaged in grassroots level activities, with the goal of supplementing their field efforts with knowledge, perspectives and skills to enable them to work with communities and facilitate expression of their concerns through the media. The programme will foster among students a critical understanding of the contemporary micro and macro level development issues and help them appreciate the role of community structures, institutions and dynamics in the context of using media for empowerment. The students will also be trained to use tools and technologies to make them proficient in designing, initiating, monitoring and evaluating media programmes in their respective communities.

A detailed announcement of the course along with the application form and prospectus can be found on the TISS website:
Should you feel this Diploma would be of use to any of your friends/ institutions you are associated with, we would be grateful if you could share this information.

Warm regards,

Anjali and Jayasankar
