Though journalism education made its beginnings in the undivided India around early 1940s, the subject has traveled its long journey facing innumerable trials and tribulations. While partition was a setback to its progress, but it soon commenced its onward march. As the country developed economically and started acquiring its station among the new and emerging nations, the need and importance of journalism education began to be realized by media in particular and the academic world in general. Gradual, several Universities in the country instituted courses in journalism at certificate and diploma levels.
