In recent years, career/professional orientation and social/regional needs have been e prime considerations in introducing new programme areas [Journalism and Mass Communication (NSOU), Pre Primary Teachers’ Training (NSOU), Computer Application(C.U.), Communicative English (C.U.)]. Quite a few Diploma/Certificate courses have been planned in some applied areas. As an outcome of conscious policy decision, the students are encouraged to opt for job oriented courses along with their regular U.G. level of study. The institutionalized system (with regular budgetary support) for extension lectures, special lectures, seminars, workshops, festivals, field-work, educational and cultural tours and regular media interactions (Communicative English) have been greatly contributing to curriculum development and its implementation in different departments. Revision and updating of teaching methods at reasonable intervals have been regular features and such changes are made as and when felt necessary.

To bring life to an environment of technological creativity, people need to have technical skill and need to invest in the development of these skills. Today’s technological transformations increase the premium on such skills and change the patterns of demand for different types of skills. This calls for a rethinking on education and training policies. Greater resources and higher number of enrolments alone are not enough. Therefore, the College along with its general courses, is thinking of introducing IT courses and considering the possibility of making Information Communication Technology training compulsory for all the students. The College is in the process to start its programme in collaboration with the Institute of Computer Engineers.
