About DMCS

Savitribai Phule Pune University was one of the first universities in India to recognize that academic training in Communication means much more than Mass Communication in general and Journalism in particular. Department of Media and Communication Studies at Savitribai Phule Pune University was established in July 1990 to serve this need. DMCS offers Ph. D., M.Phil., and M.Sc. Media and Communication Studies as a part of the Science faculty. DMCS has identified Video Production and Media Research as its strength areas for the M. Sc. course and over the years, has incorporated emerging areas in the fields of mass communication, interpersonal and organizational communication. DMCS is starting a new flexible programme from August 2018, Post Graduate Diploma in Indian Film Studies, in collaboration with National Film Archive of India (NFAI).

This constant endeavour to tune in to the demands of the ever-changing media industry and maintain high academic standards has earned DMCS the reputation of offering one of the best courses in the field of Media and Communication Studies in the India. Savitribai Phule Pune University has been given the highest Five Star status by the National Assessment and Accreditation Committee (NAAC) for its overall performance. It has also been identified as having 'Potential for Excellence' by University Grants Commission (UGC) - the apex body for higher education in India. DMCS strives to uphold this legacy of the University in letter and in spirit. The bright career path that our alumni have been following in different fields of Media and Communication is just one testimony of this legacy.
