College Info:

Beginning in a small one-storey building in Santhome, Mylapore with 32 students, the College moved to its present campus “The Cloisters” on Cathedral Road in 1960. Today the College has an enrollment of 5000 students from diverse backgrounds, communities and nations.

The College is a Catholic minority institution established and run by the Society of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM), a religious congregation founded by Blessed Mary of the Passion (Helene de Chappotin) in Ootacamund, Tamil Nadu in 1877. The initiatives of the College arise from a sound philosophy of life based on faith in God and the contemporary reality of a pluralistic Indian society that is challenged by global ideologies and cultures.

Course Info:

The Mission of the Department is to provide individuals with relevant art education, with emphasis on creativity, vocational training, social responsibility and ethical research.

In keeping with the commitment of Stella Maris College towards nurturing academic excellence, the Department’s programmes of study assure optimal educational benefits. The four year B.V.A. programme includes specialisation streams in art or design. The first four semesters are devoted to foundation courses in both disciplines. Specialisation courses are offered from the fifth semester onwards, culminating in an art/design project. While studio- based practical courses on art and design nurture the creativity of students, the study of art history provides a strong theoretical framework for their artistic expression. Art history courses are offered in all four years to build a comprehensive knowledge of theory. The combination of art theory and practice has remained unique to the curriculum and forms the strength of the Department’s pedagogy.
