St. Joseph's College is one of the oldest Catholic institutions and is a brand which is one of the factors that has attracted me. The reason I went with the course was because of the exposure the course offers as most of the professors are from the industry and they don't give any oldschool textbook knowledge. I wanted to do a full fledged Masters degree and not a diploma and this is one of the few colleges in Bangalore which offers this course.
Since this is a first course, the professors themselves have made a placement cell where they go out of the way to get their friends and various people from the industry to hire us. They even took down our dream list of organizations to work with and are trying to get them on board.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Since we were the first batch of the course, we had a lot of industrial exposure since we have very frequent guest lecturers from the industry. We are given tasks which are prevalent in the industry like coming up with a campaign for a given product, rural communications strategy, etc. The professors are very understanding and they focus on every student as an individual. The faculty is quite helpful and very enthusiastic to go out of their ways to teach us.
We have cultural fests, various departmental fests, sports fests, public holiday celebrations, different events, various clubs for extra curricular activities like music club, etc. Especially the UG block is quite active and there's a lot of different celebrations in the campus for public holidays.
