College Profile

The Bhopal School of Social Sciences was envisioned and established in 1972 by the founding chairman of the college, the then Archbishop of Bhopal Dr. Eugene D'Souza, in response to the felt need of the time for a broad based, job oriented curriculum with focus on social service and entrepreneurship. Since its inception, BSSS has evolved into one of the premier educational institutes of Madhya Pradesh shaping the educational landscape of the state.

Initially known for its Social Sciences and Management courses, which were indeed a novelty in the 70s and 80s, it grew and diversified to meet the changing needs of time and education, with the introduction of courses in Commerce, Information Technology, Teacher Education and Physical Education. The Undergraduate programmes were further developed with the addition of Post Graduate courses in Social Work, English Literature, Commerce and Business Administration. The college offers an International MBA through collaboration with Assumption University, Bangkok, in keeping with its sensitivity to global needs. It subsequently forayed into the area of Physical Education and Teacher Education with B P Ed, M P Ed and B Ed.

In sync with the high demand for Commerce subjects, it introduced B Com Honours Programme and recently added the option of Banking & Insurance to further expand the range of choices for Commerce Under Graduates. Last year the college has taken a major step towards expansion and diversification by enhancing its portfolio with 3 new Undergraduate Honors Programmes in Social Work, Economics and English Literature, 3 PG Degree programmes in Computer Science, Economics and Sociology as well as 2 PG Diploma courses in Child Guidance & Counseling, Multimedia & Animation.

Major steps in the strengthening of our academic programmes this year include the introduction of M Phil in English and Commerce as well as the introduction of 25 Certificate Courses. The overall objective of these certificate courses is to widen the educational experience of our students, to encourage inter-disciplinary learning, and to offer value addition to degree courses.
The approach to all our courses is governed by emphasis on practical orientation and exposure. A variety of extension and co-curricular activities and programmes aid the learning process and keep the learners active and involved. Enriching teacher student interaction, sharing of responsibilities, ethical development and social awareness help bring about the integrated development of our learners.
All through the process of its growth and development, the college never lost sight of the vision of its forefathers and continued to be guided by the spirit of the ideology with which the institute was established - building up a student community which is able to take bold initiatives, capable of purposeful and critical thinking, sensitive to the socio-economic needs of our country, that will step out into society and play its rightful role in contributing Towards a Better World.

The strength of our living ideology was put to the litmus test in 2006 and subsequently in 2012 by NAAC (National Assessment & Accreditation Council). On both occasions, our claim to excellence was validated through an 'A' Grade certificate. Emboldened by this recognition, the college acquired an Autonomous' status in May 2013, with a view to improving the quality of education. The institution now has the freedom and flexibility to make its own academic calendar, to enrich its curriculum, to introduce new programmes and to conduct its own exams.

Our endeavors have been encouraged and guided by our Chairman, Most Rev Dr. Leo Cornelio, the Archbishop of Bhopal Diocese, whose repertoire of work includes major initiatives in activities and projects that focus on opportunities for the development, training and employment of youth.  Steered by his vision of global education, peaceful resolution of conflict, social equality, and high moral standards of personal conduct we hope to scale new heights. Under his guidance, we endeavor to attain high academic standards and enduring values by providing a supporting environment for intellectual, social, moral and spiritual growth with a genuine concern for the world in which we live, and for improving human society.
