Under the agreement, TMTC will offer AB Journalism to NCST students starting this summer. NCST is located in Dasmariñas City in Cavite province.
NCST President and Chief Executive Officer Emerson Atanacio said the program will give their students the opportunity to get hands-on training and extensive journalistic experience.
“This [dual-degree program] will be a great advantage to our students as they will get dual certification. With this partnership, our students will surely find a job after they graduate,” Atanacio said.
According to Dr. Dante Ang Sr., chairman emeritus of The Manila Times, NCST students will not only be taught comprehensive and industry-based curriculum but will also be exposed to the actual working environment.
“The TMTC follows a very good curriculum. Students will learn not only how to write [good] stories, we will also assign them to various beats with press IDs,” Ang said. “We have state-of-the art training equipment for our learners and we also have highly competent instructors as most of them are seasoned journalists.”
TMTC President Dr. Isagani Cruz said the TMTC is gearing up to widen its network of partner schools as the country prepares for the Asean economic integration by 2015.
“It is our goal to have the best journalists in the whole world. We want our country to be number one in that field come 2015,” Cruz said.
NCST is the newest addition to the list of TMTC’s partner schools offering double-degree programs. The TMTC had signed similar agreements with the Emilio Aguinaldo College, National University, Manuel L. Quezon University and Lyceum of the Philippines University, among others.
