I feel honored and proud to be working as a Head of Media Studies and Mass Communication Department of IQRA National University. Initiating and starting a Media Studies and Mass Communication BS four years program for the first time in Peshawar is another milestone and achievement for the University. You are lucky if you get admission in this department because you have the opportunity to learn from the Journalists, Anchors, Reporters, Field Professionals, Well experienced Instructors and Qualified teachers.
As I myself have worked as News Anchor/Reporter in PTV News, Geo-News and as a Producer in Capital TV. In my 9 years field experience I have covered the media coverages and Interviews of Prime Minister, President and other VIP Personalities and having an honor of reading PTV’s 9PM Prime KHABARNAMA from Islamabad for almost 2 years so I am well familiar with the dimensions and efforts involved in media and journalism. I feel it’s important to familiarize students with practical work of Journalism, Broadcasting and other Media activities along with the theoretical work.
The Department of Media Studies &Mass Communication of INU offers you to become an expert News Anchor, Reporter, Broadcaster and Journalist
Being an expert in linguistics for a Journalist is as essential as oxygen is essential for breathing. This platform is determined to train you on excellent and proper levels in linguistics (English and Urdu).
In the premises of this institution all the necessary tools and equipment are present that are required to train a Reporter, Anchor and Producer. This provides the students with opportunity to polish and groom their skills during the studies.
I aim to produce such Anchors, Broadcasters, Cameramen, Producers, Reporters and scholars who not only mark their identity in the professional field but also in academic area so that they can have a positive and effective impact on the future of this country and nation.
I welcome all the new students in this great Department. Thankyou.
Mr. Zia Ur Rahman
