The definition of media has undergone a radical change in recent times. The shift is not merely technological but that of perception of society about media and the awareness of the potential that lies in the active participation in the creation of media. The potential to transform the society by challenging and changing the norms constantly, by resorting to the voice that is present within us, to express what is felt and it is this active expression which makes us human.

At Symbiosis Centre for Media & Communication – Undergraduate (SCMC), we cohere ideas together and give them a powerful voice and a shape. This crystal ball of consciousness has the ability to not only see but also bring a positive change in the future through its continuous evolution. Armed with the technology and brewing creativity of relentless contemplation, we pride ourselves to be the leader in media education. Thus, striving to transcend the apogee reached by us every step of the way.

Through our programme, Bachelor of Arts (Mass Communication), we offer a comprehensive experience through traditional academic learning & research with cyber & experiential learning.
