St Joseph College of Communication

Premium Destination for Media Studies

St. Joseph College of Communication (SJCC), established in 2004 with the vision of "transforming media for a wholesome world," is a Christian minority educational institution affiliated with Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. It is owned and managed by the Archdiocese of Changanassery, which oversees reputable educational institutions such as St. Berchmans College, Assumption College, and six other colleges, along with more than 120 schools. The Archdiocese of Changanassery is well-known for its contributions to education, particularly in Kerala.

SJCC is the first of its kind in South India, offering seven undergraduate and four postgraduate career-oriented programs in media-related disciplines. These programs cover areas such as photography, cinematography, scriptwriting, direction, acting, sound design, visual editing, journalism, advertising, animation, design, visual effects, architecture, and artistry etc. The college campus, spread over 5.30 acres of land in Kurisummoodu, Changanassery, Kottayam District, Kerala, provides a conducive environment for learning. Its location is easily accessible by road and rail, making it convenient for students and faculty who commute daily.

The vision of the founding patron, Archbishop Mar Joseph Powathil, combined with the expertise of Mr. John Sankaramangalam and the dedication of Fr. Sebastian Punnassery, led to the establishment of St. Joseph College of Communication. Mr. John Sankaramangalam, the former director of FTII Pune and a national award-winning film director, brought deep knowledge, practical industry experience, and administrative skills to SJCC. Under his leadership, SJCC navigated uncharted territory as one of the first colleges for film and media studies in Kerala.
