I want to draw the attention of the concerned authorities to the state of deception the students of Mass Communication in University of Karachi, are confronted with. Despite owning ample available space, the Department doesn’t own its own basis professional infrastructure, like news lab or a TV lab or a studio.
Every year thousands of students take admission here lured by the description given in their online as well as printed prospectus, about a separate news lab, recording studio for print and electronic media for both English and Urdu medium, whereas the department owns none.
In a state where all the private and government institutes are introducing mass media and communication disciplines, with state of the art laboratories to meet the demand of the modern world, the Mass Com. Department in the Karachi University is lagging far behind. The authorities should take a step toward upgrading this Department, to facilitate the students coming here on their merit.
