The study of journalism and Students’ choice for learning has hardly recognised in the age of technology and proliferation of media industries. India has witnessed unprecedented growth of private vocational journalism institutes, where Students’ choice for learning in journalism education remains inadequate attention. The paper brings an attempt to explore the Students’ choice for learning and their future aspirations. The empirical survey results indicate that aspirations of the diverse Students’ communities in private institutions can not only be met through interdisciplinary approach and cultural specific pedagogies, but social inclusiveness in media education can bridge the gap between supply and demand in the media sector.
