DSC is a private autonomous institute since 1995. The Post Graduation course offered by The Delhi School of Communication is not affiliated or recognized by any government/statutory body. The Delhi School of Communication awards its own Diplomas to students who successfully complete the necessary academic requirements. However, the Post Graduate Programme at DSC has a legacy of 25 years, and DSC students are today working in prestigious positions in premier Advertising, Public Relations, Media Planning, Marketing and Media organisations. DSC students are much sought after by the media industry, commercial, corporate and non-profit organizations in India and Overseas.
Students pursuing the prestigious Post Graduation Programme have the option of pursuing a Masters programme (MA/JMC) from Distance mode alongside the DSC programme. This is strictly optional for students. In addition, students are eligible for appearing for any two certification programmes from the Media and Entertainment Skill Council of India (MESC).
The Program structure at DSC is an academic mix of theory and hands-on practice. The academic sessions span six hours a day from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm leaving the afternoons for gaining hands-on work experience in target industries via the apprenticeship concept. Our students are placed as apprentices in leading organisations such as Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB), JWT, Publicis India, Euro RSCG, Lowe, Leo Burnett, NDTV, McCann Erickson, Perfect Relations and Genesis Burson Marsteller among other organisations, from the first semester. Apprenticeships continue in each semester with different marketing, advertising and communication organisations. This total exposure equips students with scholarship, hones attitudes and helps to develop industry related skills for entry level positions. Apart from the pin money the student makes, this also helps the individual to choose an optimum career path.
The full-time internship periods (of over 6 months) are envisaged for winter and summer. These internships are significantly weighed in the overall grading structure.
After 25 years in the industry, today more than 600 alumni are leading the communications industry across sectors. We will continue to provide the national community with contemporary and effective communication professionals for the 21st Century.
