TAMS or The Arohan Media School is an Arohan initiative powered by Amar Ujala Digital, TV and Integrated Solutions (Amar Ujala Group).

It is the result of the vision of the Director Probal Ghosal and the serious interest of one of India’s largest media houses.

The Media School was incorporated in year 2017 with the intention of bringing to the New Media space a truly international institute, with an obsessive focus on world-class research and training in New Media.

Vision & Mission Statements

The vision of TAMS is to create a world class New Media knowledge centre for the Industry and for the academia in India.

TAMS aims at providing cutting-edge multi-disciplinary training and research resources in New Media in order to create industry-ready professionals and break new grounds of thought and approaches for the Industry, particularly in the convergence space.

About Institute

The Premise
New Media is gradually enveloping all traditional Media spaces, touching, edging out and sometimes reengineering them, but because of its hugely democratic nature, it has belonged with the people, with little time and energy spent on a systematic understanding of its workings.

Especially in India, one sees a dearth of industry-ready digital professionals, and the one’s that come freshly minted from Mass Communication or Journalism courses, or worse, with online short certifications, are either taught New Media as an addendum, or taught a skill in isolation.    

TAMS, therefore, decided to begin with a flagship course, which provides a comprehensive training in all the major skills needed in New Media, with specialisation ‘pathways’.
 

Theory & Practice
We have ensured that all the teaching has a solid theoretical foundation, that the training has ample practical teaching, that the pedagogy balances instruction with contructionist learning, and that there is significant interaction between industry leaders and the students.

Since our incorporation we have made every effort to facilitate students with a rich and dynamic environment for developing new ideas and launching new careers.

A faculty of internationally recognized media makers and pioneering scholars involve students in a curriculum that combines the pressures and the skills of everyday work with the content, audiences and technology of the New Media industry.

At TAMS, we offer the one-year diploma and also offer special short-term certificate courses for graduate and working professionals.

The TAMS is established to augment interface between the Academia and the New Media Industry, through research, training and young fecund minds.

The Amar Ujala group has taken the lead in providing TAMS on-site training for students, as a part of their curriculum, and internships with its Digital, TV and Integrated solution arms, with the latest technology in a live environment.

Besides they are a part of the TAMS Placement Cell along with several other leading industry bodies.
 

Placement Cell
The Placement cell identifies industry needs and promotes institutional groundwork for meeting them by facilitating internship, seminars, workshops, placement and various other industrial training programs. This Industry- Institute partnership also mirrors in preparing faculty to latest practices and makes the students industry-ready, besides providing experience in current industry practices.

Chairman's Message



The Amar Ujala group has had a long legacy of supporting education to transform our world. We have been offering scholarships to bright young minds under the Amar Ujala and Atul Maheshwari Chhatravritti programmes for years now. It therefore gives me great pleasure to take this legacy forward by offering young graduates the opportunity to lay the foundation of a career in digital media in TAMS (The Arohan Media School).

We have taken great pains in ensuring that the students are provided with world-class academic learning coupled with continuous LIVE experience of the New Media workspace. The full strength of the infrastructure and personnel of Amar Ujala digital, TV and Integrated solutions have been made available to the students of our flagship course.

I promise the students the best we have to offer, and wish them to reciprocate by rising to the challenge of this brave new media world, both intellectually and professionally.

Director's Message

  


It gives me great pleasure to open the doors of The Arohan Media School to young students, academicians and industry experts.

I have personally been involved in several transformative phases of the media industry, and each of those experiences have taught me one thing – that we are moving into an increasingly unpredictable media space. The new media is so democratic, so amoebic that it is difficult to structure, difficult to monitor and very difficult to anticipate.

We therefore have taken great pains in handpicking the right mix of faculty from the Industry and Academia, put together the best technical infrastructure, and designed courses, which break the mould, which integrate what was earlier studied in silos, and opened our institute to students who seek a career in digital media, and to the industry and academia seeking to push the boundaries of understanding of the New Media dynamics.

Our vision is to create a world class New Media knowledge centre for the Industry and for the academia in India.

And our mission is to provide cutting-edge multi-disciplinary training and research resources in New Media in order to create industry-ready professionals and break new grounds of thought and approaches for the Industry, particularly in the convergence space.

We offer you long-term and short-term courses, and professional development programs and coursework that meet the needs of Media students and adult professional learners.

Our Management, faculty and staff care about you and your success and have designed our continuing education curriculum and programs to help you to thrive as a professional, help you to develop skills in your professional field or that initiate a career change, and help you to finish your education while balancing your current life and professional obligations.

Our partnership with Amar Ujala Network will provide you the opportunity to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real-world - experiential learning at its best!

For the first time in India, we are offering a full-time Diploma in Integrated Digital Media, a program that promises training in all the key skills of New Media from Content & Marketing to Design, Product & Operation. This program, which took a year to design, will provide you training and learning in creative and design practice with multidisciplinary research Vis a Vis emerging media technology.

If you seek a highly rewarding and stimulating Digital Media education in a learning environment that is truly international, I invite you to experience for yourself all that TAMS has to offer.
