BON SECOURS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN - Thanjore | Welcome to Our College

 

 

 

College gives individual attention to students in order to equip them to bridge the gap between traditional curriculum and changing employment needs.


  • Soft Skills

The Dept. of English, together with the Placement Cell, conducts classes to enhance the soft skills of our students, keeping inview the urgent demands of the corporate world. The focus is on students’ communication and presentation skills. Students are allowed to use the English Language Lab in this endeavor.
To inculcate life skills and global competencies, regular classes are conducted within college hours.


  • Language Lab

Listening is generally given the least priority in the teaching-learning process. This is because people believe that listening is a passive task and need not be taught, as it is acquired naturally. Contrary is the truth that listening is an arduous task and involves total attention to process what is being listened to. In fact, listening is the most crucial aspect of communication along with speaking, as it is the only way to acquire the right pronunciation.  The language lab offers adequate opportunity to acquire the listening skill.


  • Counselling and Guidance Cell

Counselling and Value Education Cell offers guidance and helps students in personal, social and vocational spheres.
Regular value education modules are conducted in the college. Life skills are taught as a means to empower young people to face challenging situations. This enables learners to acquire knowledge and to develop right attitudes and life skills which lead to a healthy behavior.


  • Women Empowerment & Entrepreneur Development Cell

The objective of the Cell is to create an atmosphere ofawareness and enlightenment among the girls regarding their duties and rights. Health and Hygiene issues concerning girls are addressed by renowned gynecologists. Any suggestions, issues and grievances concerning girls can be addressed to the cell.
The college is conscious of the dwindling placement opportunities due to the financial melt-down and has established a full -fledged Entrepreneurship Development Cell which addresses all the needs of students to become dynamic entrepreneurs. The Cell organizes various awareness programmes, like Seminars/Workshops/Interaction with young Entrepreneurs etc. These programmes will be aimed at making the student community more enthusiastic towards entrepreneurial activity. The Advisory Board for the cell comprises of members from industry, financial institutions, R &D, Government institutions etc. The board will guide and advise the cell in organizing various activities.
