New courses to chart better future

Magadh Mahila College principal on Wednesday charted out new courses that would secure future of students in the state.

Principal Dolly Sinha said there are lots of opportunities if students go for courses like bachelor of social work (BSW) and postgraduate diploma in women and child welfare (PGDWCW).

Sinha added: “Outside Bihar, not only there is a lot of awareness regarding such courses but also there is a rush for admission to these courses. On the other hand, students of Bihar are not much aware about such courses. There is a lot of scope and one gets a minimum of Rs 15,000-18,000 as monthly salary in the beginning. Apart from NGOs, students can get jobs even in the government sector. Since they would be properly skilled, they would not find difficulties in getting jobs.”

Renu Ranjan, the head of sociology department under which three courses BSW, PGDWCW and postgraduate diploma in population education (PGDPE) are run, said: “The students get technically skilled (after making projects and learning computers etc). Some of the students have got jobs with international NGOs also.”

It was said at the media conference that BEd was not required if s/he does MA in music for getting a job of music teacher.

So far as the admission dates of the forms are concerned, regular courses like BA and BSc would witness the sale of forms (Rs 400) till May 31 and the last date of the submission of forms is June 2. While the entrance test of the former is June 5, the latter would see June 7 as the entrance test date.

Regular courses like MA in psychology, economics, home science and MSc in chemistry would witness the sale of forms till May 31. There would be no entrance tests for these. The forms would be sold at Rs 400 for each course.
