The vision, mission statements and the objective emanating from them are clearly spelt out by Fatima College. In accordance with this the College aims to educate and empower women to realize their potential and inculcate values in the students as to enable them to contribute meaningfully to the society and the Nation.
The core values and objectives conceptualized by the College are transmitted to the students through yearly calendar, union activities, seminars and conferences, special orientation programmes, curricular and extra-curricular activities as well as sensitizing exercises.

There has been a significant increase in the range of course options under CBCS with a parallel process of innovative teaching methodologies.

Being an autonomous college the faculty members are involved in restructuring of courses the courses imparting knowledge and information are now restricted to the first, two or three semesters only and a wide range of skill based entrepreneurial synthetic and job oriented subjects constituting more than 60% of the curriculum are now offered as optional subjects. Spoken English is introduced in the curriculum for III year students to enhance their communication skill. Value added courses and projects with obligatory internship leading to placement are introduced in most discipline which makeup about 25% of the curriculum. Sixty of the overall courses in the I & II year undergraduate are of inter disciplinary nature and it is mandatory that these courses should be inter-departmental.

Post-accreditation Fatima College has attempted to introduce more job-oriented and skill-based courses which is commendable.

The college also needs to review and rationalize some courses introduced across subjects eg: Tourism.
