Manipal Institute of Communication was launched in October 1997 with the aim of churning out a competent and skilful bunch of professionals. The institute offers a two-year post graduate degree course in communication and a UG program that spreads over 6 semesters.
The institute hopes to create media professionals who can function efficiently in an increasingly hostile and diverse political and cultural atmosphere. The curriculum packs itself with term papers, project presentations, and field activities. Putting forth an innovative academic concept, the Manipal Institute of Communication strives to foster in its students critical thinking, creativity and entrepreneurship while diminishing the barriers of hierarchy and class.
