St. Joseph's College for Women - SJCW Visakhapatnam - SJCW

The College in its Fifty Five years sojourn, punctuated with dedication and sincerity on the part of the Management, Faculty, Staff and Students owes its success to its vision and mission of empowering the lesser privileged young women of the society for wholistic development. St. Joseph’s College for Women should be a Centre of Academic Excellence which empowers young women to provide Intellectual Leadership and transform the world through courage of conviction, optimism and hope. St. Joseph’s College for Women, affirming its faith in God and love for humanity seeks to impart Holistic education to Young Women while developing global competencies of leadership and make them socially responsive members in a changing technologically driven world. A  commendable  milestone  in  the  history  of  the  Sisters  of  St. Joseph of Annecy  in  India,  is  the  year  1958,  when   they   started   St. Joseph’s   College exclusively  for  women,  the first of  its kind in Visakhapatnam. In the 50s, Visakhapatnam did not have any facility for higher education of young women. So impressed were the public of Visakhapatnam with the service rendered by the Sisters that, in 1957, a group of prominent citizens requested the Sisters of St. Joseph to undertake the task of setting up an institution of higher learning for the young women of the city. The college, affiliated to Andhra University, was founded on 2nd July 1958, with six members of teaching staff and 28 students in the Pre-University course. The college was set up to serve the interests of the young women of Visakhapatnam and continues to do so with no thought of commercial gain. The emphasis then was on the teaching of Domestic Science but the college has since then diversified and developed to cater to the changing needs and aspirations of the young women. The college is now a grant-in-aid institution, with a campus area of 7.5 acres and student strength of 1250, offering four Intermediate courses, 12 Undergraduate courses in BA, B.Com and B.Sc and four Postgraduate courses.  The UGC, recognising the outstanding quality of education and excellent academic record,  conferred Autonomy on the College in 1987.
