| About the Institute
But, the Club's most prestigious contribution to the field of journalism is the
setting up of an Institute of Journalism in 1968. The founder-director of the
Institute was the legendary M Sivaram whose vision and foresight has made it
into a premier institution of its kind in the country. Perhaps, this is the only
institute in India, which is run by professional journalists active in the
field. We are proud that in almost every major newspaper, news agency or other
institution in the field of mass communication, one can see active alumni of our
institute. The Institute offers one year part time course and graduate course.
Admission to the Course is on the bases of performance in an entrance
examination and an interview, which is essentially an aptitude test. We select
only hundred students though over 800 candidates appear for the entrance
examination from all parts of the State every year.
