Interested in a career in Journalism, this is the place

5/5

Joining SPICE is a decision I'll cherish for the rest of my life. My experience at SPICE has taught me a lot, not only the definition of 'journalism', but what's it like to do on field reporting and gathering information from the ground with the help of assignments given by teaching staff who are professional journalist working for reputed media organisations. While interning for Times of India, I realised how helpful the course was, as I was fully aware about the interstices of reporting and what kind of report was expected from me in a particular situation and the kind of journalistic ethics that should be followed. I would highly recommend joining SPICE if you are interested in becoming a Journalist.
