The Sri Sri Centre for Media Studies (SSCMS) was founded in 2001 under the vision and guidance of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Sankar, the founder of Art
of Living (www.artofliving.org).
The institution is dedicated to catalysing
change in the media landscape. Located in the IT city of Bangalore SSCMS
aims to train and transform students into talented media professionals,
capable of positive social transformation. The dynamic, ever evolving and
often stressful media industry demands professionals with finely honed
skills and capabilities – communication skills that cut across media
vehicles, logical thinking, a spirit of inquiry, fairness and most
importantly belief in oneself to stand up for fairness and justice.
"At a post graduate level it is necessary to make a choice between theory and what could be termed as hands on training. It may be tough for many students opting for journalism to find an institution that provides the right mix. SSCMS is one such institute that instigates learning beyond the classroom." Trushna Udgirkar
"SSCMS taught me how to be a responsible journalist in addition to the principles of journalism. I have learnt from SSCMS the most important professional lesson that media's first loyalty is to citizens and journalism's first obligation is to truth."
"SCMS gave me a platform to express my creativity and taught me the basics of journalism, while at the same time gave an exposure to hard core professionalism required of a journalist." Praveen Dhaneshkar
"SSCMS has been of big help for me and prepared me for my career as a journalist. The course was practically oriented to suit the demands of the profession. I can say for sure that there are still times when I draw from the knowledge I gained in SSCMS." Avishek Roy
