    • Certificate Course in Information & Computer Basics: In order to face the challenge of the modern age and to observe the required skills of the 21st century, the College has developed a 6 month course to introduce students to the fundamentals of Information and Computer basics. For this, the College has developed the full fledged Computer laboratory to provide a separate computer to each student. Besides this, the students are made available with the internet facility and A/V aids.
    • Certificate Course in Applied Psychology: It is said that the 21st century is the center of stress and struggle. The most typical product  of this century is varied psychosis and abnormal behavior. The present practical natured course has been started by the stress, conflicts and routine problem. It is understood from this course how important is Psychology in our day to day life. There comes an easiness and straight forwardness in various occupations and routine life due to this course. The skill to handle social contact, communication and human behavior can be avoided. This course is useful in digging up the various mysteries of subconscious mind. The completion of this course may offer students to work as counselors at hospitals, factories, hostel and special schools etc.
    • Certificate Course in Translation Proficiency in English : It is a certificate course. The 21st century is becoming linguistically more and more complex. On hand English is considered as the language of knowledge and on the other every speaker of language feels that his/her language should have the knowledge of the word in his mother tongue. It has become compulsory that in this age of the development of linguistic pride that one should essentially be a polyglot. The College recognized this need of the time and launched a new certificate course in Translation Proficiency in English that attempts for the development of bilingual translation proficiency (here Marathi and English and vice versa). We belive that the present course will prove useful to our students in acquiring jobs in the fields such as journalism, literature, translation and interpreter.
