Presidency College will introduce an exclusive Master’s degree course for deaf students.
What’s it about? Presidency College will have a Master’s course for deaf students. The college already has Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) courses for deaf students. Principal R Raman said they introduced the course to a longstanding demand. They approached the state government, which sanctioned their request. Only a few colleges in the country offer such a course.
- The course will have 40-50 seats. The strength will be increased based on future demand.
- The BCom course for deaf students has 60 seats. For the new course, students can apply from September 16 to 23.
More accessibility: The course is not the only way the university is expanding accessibility. An exclusive hostel for students with disabilities is being constructed on the campus. The hope is this will help students who want to enrol in the new course. It’ll also help in its NRIF ranking on inclusivity. It ranked third in the country this year.
