Research plays a key role in both the courses offered by the department. For the completion of MCJ programme, each student has to do a small scale research on any media related topic and submit a thesis of the same. The thrust areas of research include uses and gratification studies, research on media user perceptions and research on media history. As a part of publicizing our research works we publish ‘Communication and Media Studies - An Indian Research Journal’, a quarterly devoted to communication and media research
