Quaide Milleth International academy of Media Studies
We are thankful to all the well wishers, friends and Media professionals for their efforts, encouragement and good wishes which has resulted in the emergence of “Quaide Milleth International Academy of Media Studies”.
The world has been witnessing with awe recent events of violence and destruction which is often due to the dissemination of incorrect and malicious information by vested groups. There is a need for ethically upright media professionals, who will combat the spread of false information by presenting real facts and figures to the people.
To contribute towards this noble task, QUEST has embarked on the journey towards the establishment of a high-quality media studies institution, where highly skilled knowledgeable professionals will be produced after several months of intensive training.
Several universities and affiliated colleges are offering variety of programmes in media studies apart from one independent institution which is offering the programmes in English. There is a need for specialized courses in journalism in vernacular Tamil as there is great demand in the media industry for journalists with proficiency in Tamil.
We planned to establish an independent media institution to cater to the need of the industry and the budding journalists. Our institution, named QIAMS, Quaide Milleth International Academy of Media Studies located in the heart of Chennai will be the second independent institution to offer media studies in Tamil Nadu. We have plans to move it within 2 to 3 years to our beautiful and serene campus in Medavakkam, where the Quaide Milleth College for Men is currently functioning.
The institution shall offer PG Diploma courses of one-year duration and several short-time courses of 3-to-6 month’s duration. Courses such as animation, graphics and sports journalism shall be added in due course.
Students shall be taught skills that are contemporary, meet the needs of the media industry and are recognized by experienced academicians and media professionals. State of the art infra structure facilities are provided to enhance teaching and learning skills.
We have made arrangements for tie up with reputed institutions – such as Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, Moulin Azad University, Hyderabad, Anna University, Doordarshan, Asian College of Journalism, UNICEF and UNHCR for practical training and internship We are very hopeful that QIAMS will immensely benefit our community and nation as well as the nations around us and contribute towards establishing a peaceful world. Insha Allah.
