Why Mascom


Unique, hands-on training

MASCOM pays optimum attention to real newsroom situations in a unique fashion, providing students with well-rounded education in journalism.

Affordable course fee & scholarships

We kept the course fee affordable because MASCOM is a not-for-profit institution and is run with a mission to make journalism education available to everyone.


Ever since MASCOM was set up, news organisations have taken keen interest in visiting the campus towards the end of every course to hire students.
