As the fourth pillar of democracy, media has a very important role to play in the progress of society. In the last few decades, the contours of the media have gone through a tremendous change, pushing us to recalibrate our own understanding of and engagement with media. Newer technologies have enabled even the common man to actively participate in the dissemination of news. In this scenario it is important that the core values of what govern media professionals is safeguarded and imbibed by all stakeholders, especially as English and Tamil media have been witnessing high growth in what is now known as new media.
To contribute towards this noble task, QUEST has embarked on the journey towards the establishment of a high-quality media studies institution where aspiring media professionals can receive intensive training to enter the ever-expanding media industry.
QIAMS is located in the heart of Chennai and offers Advanced Diploma Courses, Diploma Courses, as well as Specialized Certificate Courses. Our institute also takes seriously the field of Developmental Journalism, training students to undertake in-depth research for reporting on social issues affecting a developing country like India.
We have further made arrangements for tie-ups with reputed institutions such as Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, Moulana Azad University, Hyderabad, Doordarshan, and Asian College of Journalism for practical training and internships.
We envision QIAMS as an institute of high ethical standards that will effect positive social change in society.
