Our Story

Media has emerged as a very powerful instrument of social, economic and political change throughout the world. In Bhutan, the media scene has substantially changed particularly following democratisation.

However, a handful of Bhutanese media houses are lost in the midst of international media onslaught. Therefore our infant media will have to develop the capacity to withstand the external influence through creativity, quality and professionalism as it grapples with its own evolution.

Our government has adopted Public Service Media model. To fulfill its mandate and balance unhealthy programmes the public service media would have to produce voluminous original programming.

Education and training of media professionals working in the changing environment will be critical to the success of democracy. This means the need for specific media courses.

While a professional media is a key to healthy democracy, today, a majority of media employees neither have the required academic qualification nor the training required for the job.

Therefore, an exclusive training institute in this field like Bhutan Media & Communications Institute will play a significant role in churning out constant pool of competent and result-oriented professionals.
