Nitte Institute of Communication (NICO), a constituent college of Nitte Deemed to be University, will start a four-year BA (Hons) in Media and Communication, when the academic year 2021-22 begins in October.

It will be in tune with the requirements of the new National Education Policy (NEP). NICO has been offering BA and MA in Mass Communication and Journalism for the last nine years.

The curriculum of the BA (Hons) programme has been designed keeping with the industry requirements and includes subjects such as Animation, Social Media Marketing, Short Filmmaking, Photography, Introduction to VFX, Data Journalism, Advertising and Event Management, among several others, a release from the university said.

Divided into eight semesters, the programme also offers value-added courses in the third and sixth semesters and electives in the seventh and eighth semesters.
