Building on the solid tradition of academic excellence and an unwavering sense of social responsibility, Maharani’s Arts College for Women has been around for more than one hundred years, catering to the scholastic needs of women. MACW has changed with the world over the last 100+ years, often leading the way with new ideas and discoveries enabling our students develop into assured, well-rounded, eloquent individuals with a capacity for independent critical thought and intellectual clarity. At Maharani’s Arts College for Women we nurture a culture of learning driven by a shared purpose to make this world a better place through education, research, and innovation. The resolute journey we embarked upon in 1917 has been an arduous and tortuous but exciting one, chequered with academic and curricular crisscrossing. With our history spanning more than a century we have blossomed into a remarkable institution where excellence is nurtured and where we strive to provide students with an extraordinary and rewarding learning experience through our bespoke courses, fostering creativity and developing talent.
Expansive by design, MACW offers a vibrant, collegiate community with one of the best teacher-student ratios in Indian higher education. The College delivers broad and more academically rigorous degree programmes, designed to equip graduates with the combination of skills and knowledge that are increasingly desired by organisations, employers and society. Renowned to be one of the best colleges for humanities and social sciences, the College envisions for itself a critical and central role in building a futuristic society free from mercantile mindset and vulgar scientism. Ensuring all our students meet their full potential and providing them with the best opportunities to find work is our top priority. With our training the hope is that all students with talent and commitment, no matter what their background, are given important skills to take forward for life and that they can not only be part of the vibrant world but perhaps even change it.
Studying at MACW is an enriching pursuit, both personally and professionally, and our Masters and Undergraduate programmes foster advanced skills in critical questioning, information gathering, synthesis and analysis, and oral and written communication. MACW offers an intensive learning experience and immense opportunities for individual growth.
From our early beginnings, we set out to challenge traditions that hinder progress or reinforce inequality. Our bold, compelling vision for the future will ensure these values continue. We respect and celebrate our glorious past, as a platform for the future which, we hope, will be a lot better just because we have been around for quite some time.
