It runs a postgraduate programme also through the distance education mode. In all, there are 7 academic programs; 6 undergraduate and 1 postgraduate. The College is located in a semi-urban area and its mission is to impart higher education in a rural scenario.
In the Humanities stream a student has to study English and either Hindi or Sanskrit as compulsory language subjects and select two elective subjects out of several options, viz. Hindi/ Sanskrit, History, Political Science, Mathematics, Geography, Philosophy, Sociology, Economics, Psychology, Military Science, Home Science and Vocal Music. However, the college has some restrictions on the choice of subjects and reserves the right to withdraw any subject if the enrolment falls below 30.
Students enrolled for the B.Sc. programme study the same compulsory language subjects. However, they can choose either the combination of Chemistry, Botany and Zoology, or that of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics as elective subjects. All Arts and Science subjects are offered at the pass level only.
The B.Com. degree is offered at two levels, Pass and Honours. Students in the Commerce stream, studying for B.Com.(Pass), have to study 5 compulsory and 1 optional paper in the first year, and 5 each in the second and third years, i.e. 16 compulsory subjects in all in three years, apart from one elective subject in each of second and third years of study. In order to obtain the B.Com. (Honours) degree, a student studies the same subjects as a student in the pass programme in the first year, but offers 6 compulsory papers in each of second and third years. The courses are not modularized and being conventional in nature, are not amenable to interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary approach.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
The Peer Team, after going through the Self-Study Report and after its visit to various academic and physical facilities, is satisfied with the overall performance of the institution, keeping in view its constraints and limitations in imparting higher education to the students in and around Bahadurgarh. The Peer Team wishes to place the following commendable features of the College on record and also make some recommendations for its further progress.
Dedication and commitment of the Principal, Teaching and non-teaching staff of the College.
Good teamwork among the staff and a healthy relationship between the teacher and the taught, resulting in efficient teamwork.
Monitoring of students' conduct and attendance in classes as well as in class-tests, and informing the parents about the performance of their wards.
Active role played by teachers in promoting students' participation in various activities.
Keeping in view the fact that the Government College, Bahadurgarh, is the only co-educational Government College in the sub-divisional town of Bahadurgarh, and in view of the ongoing globalization and liberalization in various fields including Higher Education, the Peer Team wishes to put forth the following recommendations for consideration of the institution:
The College teaches all Arts and Science subjects at the 'pass' level only. The students are in a disadvantageous position in respect of admission to post-graduate programmes. The College may try to introduce honours courses and restore the post- graduate programmes that were earlier taught in the College.
The College may also try to introduce frontline and career-oriented courses on subjects like Bio-technology, Industrial Microbiology, Fisheries, Computer Applications, Electronics and Computer Science. These courses may also be run in self-financing manner as has been suggested by the U.G.C.
The College has a good culture of sports. It may try to ensure wider participation of the students in sports and physical activities. The State Government may also consider introducing the Bachelor of Physical Education (B.P.Ed.) programme in the College.
The College is yet to have an Alumni Association. The same may be formed and activated and its activities encouraged for the welfare of the college.
The College may start maintaining a record of students' progression and their achievements in competitive examinations.
Some of the academic departments have only one or two teachers. The College may try to obtain permission of the State Government to appoint at least one or two part- time or guest lecturers. Government may be moved in order to fill up the sanctioned posts which are lying vacant. As an alternative, the College may be permitted to appoint teachers on contract basis.
The administrative staff may be trained in the use of computers so as to enable them to discharge their duties more effectively.
Teachers may prepare projects and submit to U.G.C.(as Minor Research Projects) and other funding agencies so that they can get research grants and enrich the institution through research and building up of infrastructure.
The College library may be strengthened by subscribing to journals and newsletters. The library may be computerized on a priority basis and access for students to internet and audio/video facilities may be ensured.
The college does not have any mechanism /process for internal quality checks. A mechanism may be evolved for collecting feedback from students on various aspects of their learning experience.
The college may try to establish national /international linkages for training and research which is essential for students to keep up with the times.
The Peer Team is of the opinion that the exercise of assessment of Government College, Bahadurgarh, that it has carried out will be of use in giving the institution a new sense of direction and in enabling it to initiate quality enhancement measures towards further growth and development of the College. The Peer Team extends its thanks to the Principal and staff of the Government College, Bahadurgarh, for their kind hospitality and co-operation during the visit. The Peer Team wishes a bright future for the institution as well as the hundreds of students whose future it is building with zeal and sincerity.
