0 0 32 16
OBJECTIVE:
The core objective of Internship is to give an opportunity to the students, on-the field industry
exposure in an organization of their choice and learn about the organization structure, work
process, work culture for a semester.
Guidelines for Students choosing Media Organization: The students will be allowed to approach a reputed media organization of their choice anywhere in India. They have to get an acceptance letter from the organization for not less than a month. Students will be allowed to intern only TWO organizations, during the entire semester. Internship with independent media personalities / experts will be approved only on the basis of the merit of the expert by the Co-ordinator.
Review Evaluation: The students will have periodic reviews (three reviews) by the panel of faculty members. The review panel will be constituted by the Internship Co-ordinator on the approval of the Head of the Department. Apart from the internal reviews by the faculty members, a field wise evaluation form (prepared by the department) marked and duly signed by the supervisor/ manager of the media organization to whom the intern is reporting to should be
59
submitted. The internal reviewer panel marks and the evaluation sheet marks from the supervisor / manager from the organization are considered equally, and Marked for 100 for all the three reviews. Student should make presentation and exhibit their works in all the three reviews. Final Evaluation: The final evaluation will be external evaluation, where the students have to present their learning through a brief presentation and also by submitting a report. The report should contain all their work samples. The external evaluator will be senior professionals from the media industry. The external evaluator will be approved by the concerned authorities. OUTCOMES: At the end of the semester, the students will be able to understand and experience the actual function of media organization, its work process, roles of professionals, importance of meeting deadlines, work culture and ethics in organization set-up.
