Madras Christian College traces its origin to a School started by Rev. John Anderson in 1837 at George Town, Madras (Chennai). It continues to be actively involved in Nation building by imparting sound learning, building character, and spreading spiritual truth and knowledge of God. Trans – located a century later in the midst of an awe inspiring 365 acre stretch of the primeval Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest of the Selaiyur – Vandalur range at Tambaram, the college campus at present has the rare distinction of being transformed into a miniature wild life sanctuary. Besides, there are six residential Halls, three exclusively for girl students, all planned and built on the model of Oxford and Cambridge Universities. In the campus are several residential family quarters for members of the Faculty and Office staff, a wide range of play fields with an imposing pavilion, an indoor Sports Stadium, a highly organized college farm etc., With the ever abiding good will of generations of Alumni and Alumnae, spread all over the world, the College enjoys a unique atmosphere, saturated with both academic and cultural heritage and cosmopolitan in character. Through personal integrity, deep commitment and vision on the part of the Faculty, the College continues to be the Citadel of Higher Education in South Asia and enjoys the privilege of being accredited as one among the very few top ranking educational institutions in our country. In the year 1978, in recognition of the meritorious service rendered by the College in Nation building for over 140 years, the University Grants Commission and University of Madras accorded academic autonomy to the College. The College has completed 179years of meritorious service to the Nation and enjoys the rank of ‘A’, as one among the very few Universities and Colleges of our country assessed and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Commission.
On the assumption of autonomous status, the College geared itself up towards augmenting Human Resources for achieving innovative ventures and one such pioneering venture that was launched in 1983, was the Department of Continuing Education. With Dr. R. Rajkumar as its dynamic first Director, the Department emerged as the autonomous M.C.C. School of Continuing Education (MCCSCE) of the College. As an expression of its commitment to respond effectively to the plight of the less privileged youth, who, for various reasons, could not join the main stream of the college the MCCSCE through the years has developed several Job and Career Oriented and Skill-Development Courses.
The MCCSCE also provides students of the mainstream of the college the opportunity to take advantage of the courses offered on part-time basis, either in the forenoon or afternoon sessions and/or on Week-ends (Saturdays). Thus, a student of the graduate or postgraduate course of the mainstream who has the entire forenoon or afternoon free from class work, will have the option to chose any of the morning or evening or Week-end (Saturday) courses and earn one or two Diplomas, in addition to the Degree which will help in getting employment on completion of the regular course in the college.
1. To invest human resource in Nation building. This is achieved by providing the appropriate academic and application based inputs in order to exploit the inbuilt resources of the individual.
2. To permit the maximum exposure to the students for innovative ideas, provided by the experts in each area of specialization.
3. To inculcate in the students the spirit of self-reliance and communicative skills.
4. To provide every opportunity to students to appreciate the dignity of labor and to move from the periphery to the core in human society.
5. To train the apparently handicapped youth in the process of knowledge and technology transfer.
The courses of the MCC School of Continuing Education are aimed at imparting knowledge and skills which help in getting jobs and enable Self-Employment and Self-Improvement.
