Madurai Kamaraj University started a unique Evening College on the 1st December 1969 in its பண்பாளர் P.T.R. பழனிவேல்ராஜன் வளாகம் situated on Alagarkoil Road, Madurai-2. The concept of Evening College was evolved particularly for the benefit of employed / self-employed aspirants. From its inception, the college catered to the educational needs of lakhs and lakhs of candidates who were not able to undergo higher studies through regular mode of education in and around Madurai. The Evening College has been existing for its determined aim of providing higher education to the working people who could not pursue their studies in regular stream. As such, the yeomen services of the evening college continued up to 2012. The sudden closure of Evening College had shut down the opportunity of many aspirants’ desire to study UG and PG/M.Phil courses.
In order to help the employed persons and in view of the increased demand for higher degree courses, the Madurai Kamaraj University Evening College was re-established on the 15th December 2017. The college offers M.Phil. Courses in 21 subjects from the academic year 2017-2018 and M.Phil in Political Science form 2019-20. At present, UG Courses in B.A. Tamil, B.A. Economics, B.A. English, B.A. History, B.A. Political Science, B.Sc. Mathematics, B.Com, BBA and PG Courses in M.A. English, M.Sc. Mathematics and M.B.A, are offered. The college will certainly work towards the quality of education aiming at achieving excellence, equity and employability for the student community.
