ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
St. Stephen's College, New Delhi, regarded as one of the premier Science and Arts colleges in India, offers undergraduate courses in Physics, Chemistry, English, Economics, Mathematics, History, Philosophy, Sanskrit, B.Sc. (Programme) and B.A. (Programme). The nonpareil faculty members of this college, officially known as the Senior Members, are not only highly qualified academicians but also excellent human beings who are always there for the students of the college - the Junior Members - whenever they need them. Regular theory classes are held for every undergraduate course and they are complemented by weekly tutorial classes wherein the teachers review the lessons taught through the week through exercises and also clarify any doubts that the students may have. Moreover, the teachers are always approachable for clearing doubts through e-mail and during their off periods. The class hours of the science courses are particularly hectic, as there are regular and rigorous three-hour laboratory classes three to four days a week, along with intensive theoretical classes. The college hosts a huge library with thousands of books on diverse subjects ranging from Literature to Quantum Physics. The college also offers part-time Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma language courses in several languages. Recently, the college, in collaboration with Network 18, has introduced an open course on Citizenship And Cultural Richness, which is a multi-disciplinary certificate course for any citizen of Delhi with an eagerness to gain knowledge on issues ranging from Politics to Science. The weekly lectures are hosted in the College Hall by some eminent faculty members and ex-Stephenians.
