Welcome to the portals of Miranda House, an institution where excellence is tradition. Miranda is for those women who shall be pioneers, for those who shall experiment with the cutting edge of contemporary thought and creative expression, for those who shall dare give shape to their aspirations and cherished dreams. The corridors of Miranda continue to resound with the footfalls of generations of young women, the alumna who ventured forth to uphold these traditions of Miranda and be achievers in their chosen field of enterprise.

At Miranda House we believe that each student is special and has the potential to excel in many different ways. Then the touchstone of all our programmes is active engagement that nurtures individual talent. We impart formal education with a difference even as we work within the constraints of a traditional university system. Through carefully crafted interaction and activities within and outside the classroom, we provide experiences that help the student discover innate capabilities, set life-long goals and proactively work towards their fulfillment.

Miranda House is reputed for providing quality liberal education in the humanities and the basic sciences. The academic life is rigorous and designed to lay a firm conceptual foundation and provide professional expertise necessary for adapting to the challenging work place. The college has as its backbone excellent infrastructure; the teaching laboratories and general facilities are amongst the best in the University. The faculty is distinguished and the support staff dedicated. The teaching-learning programmes are marked with personal mentoring; students are encouraged work in collaborative teams and learn from peers. The emphasis is on innovative teaching strategies that provide experiential learning through project work, field work and case studies. The college has several career oriented programmes; it will soon be introducing adjunct modules to enrich and add value to the degree programmes. The students can pursue these in conjunction with their regular course of studies.

Life at Miranda, however, is not just an academic fire-wall. At any time, the campus remains suffused with vibrant energy as the entire community revels in the creative pursuit of extra-curricular activities with equal vigour. Amateur activities often verge on the professional and provide the forum for launch of artistic careers. Then there can be no better place than Miranda to spend your formative years. We hope the following pages would inspire you to join the fraternity. When you are with us, we promise to share with you what we have learnt and, in turn, learn from you what you would share with us. Long after you have left Miranda, you will cherish memories of the alma mater and rely on the life long support structure provided by a unique peer group and by a caring faculty who shall be your friends and mentors.
