The Political Science curriculum is centralised in the University of Delhi and is also very theoretical. The syllabus is divided into 6 semesters over 3 years and each semester consists of 4-5 papers graded on the basis of end-term exams, internal tests and assignments. The faculty for Political Science at JMC is one of the oldest in the university and professors are punctual at taking lectures and tutorials every day. The college is strict about attendance although it is compensated for students participating in extra curricular activities. There are students from all walks of life with different interests and aspirations making it equally easy and difficult to fit in. 


There are numerous clubs and societies varying from Mudra(the western dance society), Kahkasha(hindi street play) to Mercatus(the marketing club). All societies are relatively active and some of them do phenomenally well during inter-college tournaments. Montage, the annual cultural festival is apparently one of the most popular festivals in Delhi University and happens every year in the month of March. JMC has almost all sports teams and has the best all-girls football team, winning the vice-chancellors trophy almost every year.

Jesus and Mary College, Delhi University; has one of the best teaching faculties for BA English Honours in the whole of our country, India. The syllabus and learning is taken seriously and the teachers work very hard to inculcate not only the syllabus but familiarize their pupils with the entirety of the History of English Literature and the various divisions of ages, methods and styles of writings, issues pondered and tones of interpretation that could be applied to a particular author's work. The student evolves not just academically, but also psychologically, philosophically and socially. The focus is laid on the overall developement of the student with different interesting takes on teaching the syllabus including projects, research, presentations, lectures etc. The experience as a student has been enriching and rewarding.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: JMC has a excellent faculty. Experienced as well as young professors in all departments, who would cater to all your doubts and you will get out of the box education. There are two semesters.There are usually two assistments every semester and one project. But it totally depends on your subject and professor. eg- if you're a Mass communication student you might have a couple of projects each semester. Professors in college are very sweet, they will give you their contact number and email ids so you can contact them anytime during the day. (except a few of cource! )
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS: JMC supports the sports students the most in DU. We have many international sports students enrolled in the college for the same reason. The college has various societies and supports them completely. 
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: Being a convent, JMC is very strict in regard to dicipline. No indisciplinary behaviour is tolerated. But off campus your allowed to do whatever you feel like.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: hi, my name is dikshita baruah and am a student of jesus and mary college,delhi,currently persuing my last year of college in the sociology department.Three years in my college i guess its more than enough to give a review of about my college especially of my department.As this college is affiliated to the delhi university i guess this explains the reason for the high cut offs required to get an admission into it but the best part about jmc is one can surely benefit from the cut offs set aside by other colleges by applying to my college as at the time of admission the best of four is taken into consideration and along with it if in the subject one wishes to take up a course then in that particular subject an aggregate percentage of marks is added thus increasing ones overall percentage and one can be sure if one is aspiring for a degree under delhi university post 3 years in the ugc level,he is sure to get it under jmc. once you r in the campus and college starts the college sure is going to transform your overall personality post 3 years hence and this is possible with the wide range of exposure offered to you in the campus life  in classrooms where you have the best teachers who are highly talented themselves and have such dynamic personalities about the world around them,who amke sure that they transmute their knowledge and personality within you and transform you into an individual capable to facing this competitive world fearlessly.moreover the college gives one immense opportunity to grow by organizing diffrent talks with emminent personalities,by providing exposure for placement to all by equally giving each girl to sit and attend pre placement talks and then choose her own forte wherin the desired candidate can sit for their own company placement.we have companies like zomato.the oberois,torque,dell etc coming to our collge and every year quite a hansome number of girls get a chance to live their dreams post college when the real life begins. as far as the classroom ambience is concerned jmc is gifted with the best and most friendliest teachers any college i doubt can have.they push each girl to their best by acting as a friend helping them through giving indepth knowledge relevant to the current times so that each and evry girl relates the bookish knowledge to their evryday life and this adds to the fun quotient at jmc.there are classroom presentations,research trips,class tests,home assignments each planned well in advanced so that the students are comfortabllu prepared for it,and to add up off campus through latest technological help we have chat groups with our teachers wherin we cn interact with them evn at odd hours of night during exams,such are the kinds of teachers available at jmc :) the methodology of teaching involves reviewing past years question papers at the end of evry topic,referring of current topics and also there are tutorials wherein girls are divided into groups of 8/9 each and every group meets each teacher every week to discuss their doubts.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: jmc doesnt have an exchange offer as such but yes we do have foreign guests at times who give us talks and also we have foreign university like the kingston college,london who visit the campus to enrich the students as to how to apply there post undergraduations by providing them knowledge about admissions,scholarship ets.the languages spoken in the campus are english,hindi but the languages that are taught in the campus also includes french spanish etc in which the students can pass their graduation
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS: the college offers one a variety of options to excel in extra curricular activities by providing them to be the part of various societies be it dance both indian and western music dramatics both hindi and english debating society,mun society  and not to forget sports which includes swimming,cricket,football,basketball tc.if you are wonering jmc being a girls college still has cricket and football then yes i m not joking,all girls college too can be intresting afterall why should boys have all the fun,right? with all the societies mentioned above i dont think there is now a doubt that our alumni includes priyanka gandhi or a neha dhupia..:)
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: jmc has girls of all backgrounds,class,race and even foreign students.with such diversity there can be no question of any discrimination rather a very positive healthy and friendly atmosphere is what surrounds the college.when we have our annual fests one can see all the beautiful girls hanging around posing eating making merry etc(undoubtedly it is considered to be the best and most sought after fest of delhi university thus;)) the campus is narcotics and alcohol free.0 tolerance is provided if any one is found violating the campus rules although the collge is the most fun campus to be around otherwise.

About Jesus & Mary College, [JMC] New Delhi

This institution is run by the Sisters of Jesus and Mary Congregation that originated in France in 1818. It was founded by a noble lady St. Claudine Thevenet. Claudine was moved by the atrocities and miseries of her time and she was convinced that only knowledge and love of God could transform the society of her time. Her aim was to make God known and loved through Christian education of the young, especially the poor. The Congregation has spread far and wide into all continents. In 1842, the sisters came to India. Jesus and Mary College was established in 1968, and has been imparting higher education in the fields of Arts  and Commerce.

The College began with the vision of educating young women to help them bring about development in themselves, their homes and society. We are committed to give our students a sense of God and the ability to recognize the Divine in themselves and their fellow beings, and to thus respect the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. Our endeavour has been to offer an integrated, all round education, that focuses on intellectual, cultural, social, aesthetic and spiritual development of our students to make them compassionate and committed human beings.

It has been institution’s consistent endeavour to provide quality education to its students, inculcate discipline as well as provide an opportunity for all round personal development. We are fortunate to have dedicated, committed and competent faculty, supported by a motivated and cooperative non teaching staff. The college offers various extra curricular activities through cultural societies like Dramatics Society, the Western Music and Debating, to name a few. Inter College events and the College Annual Festival give the students an opportunity to express their talent and leadership skills.
