It is universally recognized that mass communication today plays a critical role in imparting social values and understanding of the world beset by many conflicts and contradictions. The role of the journalists and media practitioner in contributing to public opinion and generating national and international debate and setting social agendas thereby becomes critical. Therefore, the promotion of quality education in this area is an imperative to ensure that media is rooted in democratic and ethical values.

At the same time most prestigious schools of mass communication and journalism tend to be located in metros with all the advantages of easy access to manpower and latest technology. The vast hinterland has had to make do with mediocre teaching and ill-equipped departments unable to provide the kind of theoretical and hands on training required to meet the professional demands of the highly competitive media industry. KIIT seeks to change this situation by providing quality media education and technical facilities in a non-metro city like Bhubaneswar.

Hands on training and simulated work platforms are a distinct feature of the courses the KIIT School of Mass Communication offers. Responsive to rapidly changing technology and media scenario, the Mass Communication School provides state-of-the-art technical facilities, a competent core faculty and academic support drawn from throughout the country wherever excellence is to be found.

In an era of commercialization to retain values of social responsibility and commitment on the strong ground of skills and scholastic competence (which contributes to the development of quality and standards) is the hallmark of the Mass Communication School. The program will not only cater to the need of providing trained manpower to the ever growing industry, but also attempt to chart new grounds in terms of producing proactive students sensitive to the needs of wider society. KIIT has historically made diverse efforts to contribute to social development and progress and sees the establishment of the School of Mass Communication as a continuation of this ongoing commitment.
