About the Institute
Shasun College School of Liberal Education, in response to the relevance and meaning of education of tomorrow, has designed an undergraduate program for women. This program takes into account the unique roles of women in social systems and settings as well as the emerging roles into the new sectors of growth in the country.
This education primarily shifts the existing focus on exclusive and silo streams of knowledge to the reality of continuity of knowledge and wisdom existing across millenniums. As such, this education emphasizes and focuses on the multiple roles and membership in various systems in which women are a part of. The SLE gives immense significance in preparing the young women to unfold their talents and at the same time preparing them to take care of both social and professional roles.
Why the Institute?
- Shasun College School of Liberal Education for Women helps to create a Center of Excellence on par With World Class Institutions.
- The Shasun College School of Liberal Education is the First Institute in South India to come up with liberal education course and first of its kind for women in India.
- The students will be housed with facilities like Classrooms, Library, Faculty Rooms, Syndicate Room, Dance Studios, Performing Arts Studio, Library, and Auditorium among other facilities. These facilities are modern and have been planned to enable student-student, student-faculty and faculty-faculty interaction within and outside the classroom spaces.
- This is different from other types of education where students develop professional or vocational skills for a specific job.
From Employer’s Point of View:
- Lucrative to Employers – because students will have the skills necessary to adapt in a changing workplace. Employers desire transferable skills (skills employees take with them to any job) typical of a liberal arts education. These include written and verbal communication skills and the ability to solve complex problems and work well with others.
From Student’s Point of View:
Through a liberal arts education, you acquire skills that will enable you to thrive in a rapidly changing world, including the ability to:
- Critically analyze and synthesize information and ideas
- Construct arguments drawing on several sources
- Persuade, both orally and in writing
- Understand relationships among different disciplines, ideas or historical trends
- Be comfortable with diversity and understand how cultural and ethnic backgrounds shape perspectives
- Think creatively and independently, and
- Exercise self-discipline and meet and exceed high expectations
Many of these abilities focus on how best to use information — gathering it, sifting through it, evaluating it, organizing it and sharing it effectively. These skills have never been more relevant
It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming you to School of Liberal Education, Shasun Jain College. The college in T-Nagar, Chennai started in 2004 with a vision to create an educational edifice for young women, where quality education and women empowerment would be of paramount importance. Hence, we embarked on a journey to create an institution which would bring pride to the founders, the stakeholders and the most chiefly its students. We are an eight years-young college, ranked consistently among the best in the city. It is our goal now to become a leader in women’s education.
It gives me great pleasure and a sense of pride in starting a Liberal Education Program in Chennai. In a sense, its a nostalgic feeling for me as, personally, I believe I had somewhat a Liberal Education way back in 1970's. Though it was a self learning, but it kind of shaped my life and gave me the experiences which I would not have got if I followed the conventional route. Hence, its a great privilege to embark on this journey, yet again, with numerous new friends.
