A SACAC student has many advantages over conventional mass communication courses: a stimulating and meticulously crafted curriculum, first-rate infrastructure, one-on-one engagement with distinguished experts and faculty from the industry and a lush campus in the heart of South Delhi.
We enable our students with knowledge, tools and opportunities that you can use to tap into and build on your individual creativity and potential. Our student will graduate not only industry ready, but with the professional confidence to lead, innovate and transform evolving landscapes of media arts and communication.
Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts & Communication (SACAC) currently offers one-year Diploma/Post Graduate Diploma courses in Advertising & Public Relations, Audio Engineering & Music Production, Creative Documentary and Photography. For those looking for less intensive and lengthy engagement, there are additional Short Term Courses, which typically last between 2 to 4 months.
The courses and departments function independently with dedicated staff and facilities, whilst staying in tandem with the larger goals and principles of SACAC.
We find that by creating a milieu of creative freedom, positivity and support, our students step fearlessly into the professional media world with the hunger to excel, the proficiency to achieve and a deep sense of inner purpose.

Shri Vijay Poddar
It will be my pleasure to welcome you to the Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and Communication (SACAC).
The Centre encourages creative learning in media arts and communication with a focus on individual holistic growth. As a student here you will be at the centre of everything we do. We will give you the opportunity to learn new skills, try out new hobbies, know yourself better, make a contribution to your community as well as meet new friends along the way.
We are fortunate to be positioned in the heart of South Delhi on a sprawling green campus and have an environment that is conducive for academic learning as well as artistic and intellectual stimulation. We work hard to make sure our students are provided with the environment and infrastructure facilities they deserve.
The SACAC Programmes have been developed keeping a unique pedagogy and curriculum in mind in order to facilitate creative learning in media arts and communication. Our pedagogy attempts to give the students a strong foundation in the disciplines by exposing them to the latest and best in their respective field – be it film making, photography, audio engineering or Ad & PR while instilling in the students the spirit of experimentation that is needed in order to find their signature technique and style when they practice their craft as industry professionals.
We have chosen our faculty with care so that this can happen. Our faculty members have impeccable credentials as well as ample industry experience which makes skilled in their respective fields. Many of them have won awards in media arts and communication and this has resulted in our alumni doing well after they graduate from the Institute to join the industry.8 successful photography shows over the years, and our Student film work in recent years travelling internationally to win accolades bear testimony to this claim. From the Ad & PR department we have alumni placed and working in the top agencies across India, thriving in their professional lives. Our Audio Engineering Graduates are part of some of the most sought after Studios in Delhi, work with all the best venues in the city for Live Sound, record & mix with respected professionals here and in Mumbai, and since recently, are even part of film teams for sound as well as in main stream Bollywood composing and arranging Music !
In fact our alumni is our pride and joy as they have kept in touch with the Institute over the years and regard the place almost as a second home where they can come back to any time!
We do our best to provide a happy and purposeful atmosphere where staff and students will have a wonderful relationship by working in partnership with each other. We hope that this will ensure a SACAC community where each student will feel connected, valued and can flourish.
I do hope you decide to join us. Wishing you a successful and fruitful academic year ahead!
