"The uplift of the woman, the awakening of the mass, must come first and then only can any real good come about for the country, for India."
RamamkrishnaSarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan, founded on the vision of Swami Vivekananda, marks a bold departure from the existing pattern of educational institutions. Our College provides a peaceful and apolitical academic environment, ideal for pursuit of an all round education. Here the students are placed under the direct supervision and care of dedicated teachers and monastic members of Sri Sarada Math and Mission in an atmosphere of serenity, peace, discipline and morality.
The College does not just believe in churning out good students and successful career-persons, but in creating self-reliant human beings with humane principles and a strong sense of responsibility towards society. It thus works towards creating an ideal society based on the principles of equality, freedom, justice and tolerance and respect for religious diversity and moral values, as emphasized in the Constitution of India.
The college follows the CBCS semester system, as mandated by the UGC. At the undergraduate level (BA/B Sc) it currently offers 11 Honours courses (Bengali, Economics, Education, English, Geography, History, Journalism and Mass Communication, Philosophy, Political Science, Sanskrit, Sociology) and 14 General courses (Human Rights, Mathematics and Psychology in addition to the Honours subjects). The department of Philosophy also offers a two-year postgraduate course (MA).
In addition to the prescribed university curriculum, the College offers a number of career-oriented courses, like the 52 week Preparatory Course for Public Sector Jobs held by the George School of Competitive Exams (GSCE); Spoken English and Interpersonal Skill Development Training Programme by ELTA GLOBAL; and a 6 month Certificate Course titled 'Basic Skills of Counselling and Stress Management' in collaboration with Centre for Counselling Service and Studies in Self Development (CCSSSD), Jadavpur University. All the courses are held in the campus and are offered at subsidized rates for students of this college, past and present.
A unique feature of this College is its dedicated Value Education Programme, which aims to instill a strong understanding of and respect for cultural and religious diversity and moral values in young minds. Co-curricular studies like Computer education and Spoken English and extra-curricular classes like Yoga, Sports and Dance are offered for the students. These courses, in addition to the year round co-curricular and outreach activities adopted by the students and faculty and staff, help nurture and strengthen the physical, intellectual, moral, and spiritual faculties of the students and help create self-reliant and confident individuals, with a strong sense of moral and social responsibilities.
