Bharati College, one of the only two women’s colleges in West Delhi, is a constituent college of the Delhi University and caters to about 1900 students, offering instruction in ten disciplines in the Arts and Social Sciences.
Besides the BA Programme, where students can choose from 4 languages (Hindi, English, Sanskrit and Punjabi) and 7 Discipline Courses (Economics, History, Political Science, Computer Applications, Office Management and Secretarial Practice, Family and Child Welfare and Music) the College offers instruction in the B Com Pass and B Com Honours courses, as well as Honours Courses in English, Hindi, Sanskrit, History and Political Science. The College also admits students keen to pursue a Master’s degree in Hindi.
Besides their academic commitments, students must also choose one co-curricular activity (out of NSS, NCC and Sports). The College has a very active cell of the National Service Scheme as well as a very capable and enthusiastic wing of the National Cadet Corps. The NSS works with physically and visually challenged students, inmates of the Tihar Jail, as support staff for the nearby Deen Dayal Hospital and with many other agencies.
The NCC parade takes place on Thursday afternoons and on Saturdays. Many of our NCC cadets go on to sit for the ‘C’ and ‘B’ Certificates, making them eligible for employment in the army and other wings of the government.
In sports, the College has extensive fields with a state-of-the art basketball court, a volleyball court, kho-kho and throw ball fields and a fully developed cricket ground. Any student interested in sports is welcome to join the various teams, even if she has not been admitted on the sports quota.
The College offers a number of avenues for personality development and nurturing of talent through extra-curricular activities in theatre, dance and music as well as debates and literary and cultural activities and departmental societies. Chilman, the dramatic society, the Eco-Club and the Gandhi Study Circle also motivate students to be actively involved with their environment and the world around them.
Amongst the many facilities available to students, are a fully digitized library, three computer labs with more than a hundred computers with broadband connections as well as access to a number of portals under the UGC-Infonet E-journal Consortium, a seminar hall, a committee room as well as a studio theatre. We are also equipped with a photostat and phone booth, a large canteen and an extension counter of the Punjab National Bank in the College premises. There is a fully equipped medical room, manned by a medical doctor, as well as a counselling centre for those who need psychodynamic counselling in the college premises.
The College also offers part-time, self-financing courses in foreign languages (French, German and Russian) as well as computer courses and Certificate Courses in Journalism to prepare students for the world of work. These courses run in the afternoons after regular classes are over, are manned by highly trained personnel and place great emphasis on practical training and hands-on instructions.
