The Government Arts and Science College (co-education), Jayankondam,was established in the year 2019 by the Government. This College is one of the best Government Institutions in Tamilnadu. Top beaurocrats, administrators, defence personnel and high profile politicians are alumni of this institution. the awareness of Higher Education among the people in and around the small town Jayankondam, as well for the development in the field of primary, middle level education in Tamilnadu, on top of the then State Government policy to spread Higher Education in the rural areas of less privileged, contributed to establish this Government College of Arts at Jayankondam.


Admissions to the college is coveted by students due to the exceptional guidance offered by highly qualified teaching faculty. The ultimate aim of education is to make a person knowledgeable and well informed and offer him / her life skills so that one can earn one’s livelihood. In today’s world it would certainly be myopic to look at any educational programme purely from the job placement point of view. In the present scenario of economic turbulence an educational programme / College that would ensure a long term benefit such as sustainability rather than a short term promise of job placement should be chosen.
