MUMBAI: In their endeavour to ensure proliferation of film and media education, Whistling Woods International (WWI) has partnered with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

The coming together of the academic pedagogy of TISS and the practical rigour of WWI’s education promises to form a partnership to ensure that the best film and media education is offered to students.

Talking about the association, WWI founder and chairman Subhash Ghai said, “A lot of thought and meticulous planning has gone into finalizing the curriculum, faculty and the practical nature of the education at WWI. It is regularly updated keeping international standards in mind. Associating with TISS, an institution of high academic pedagogy, is a step in the same direction; to enhance the quality of programs offered at WWI.”

TISS director Parasuraman added, “Filmmaking, communication and media studies are as much a part of society as any other field. Over the years, TISS has always delivered progressive education in all the social sciences. We have closely observed WWI, interacted with the management team of WWI and observed that they demonstrate the same degree of quality consciousness as TISS.We at TISS felt it appropriate to partner with WWI to offer degree programs in filmmaking, communication and media studies.”
