Departmental Clubs

The Department of Humanities has many in-house clubs. These clubs were introduced to provide extracurricular opportunities to students, and to facilitate practical learning.

Literary Club was established in 2010 to foster literary sensibilities of students and also to provide a platform to develop an interest in matters related to culture, literary arts and language. The activities of this club in the institute also involve the creation of written materials in various forms such as short stories, serial stories, poetry, essays, articles, etc. The club also conducts literary week where several written and spoken literary competitions are conducted. Literary Club is more than just a club for reading and writing; it is also a place where students can come to share their insights on politics, life, and school issues. It is customary that the Literary Club at St. Claret College observes an important day in the life of a major literary figure.

The Humanities Club was formally instituted in the academic year 2014 – 2015 to encourage and provide students with opportunities for growth in their respective fields through competitions, field visits, workshops etc. From the very first year, the club shows a lot of enthusiasm and organizes various events. The club conducted its first national level Inter-collegiate Humanities Fest, “Resonance”, on 12 September, 2014. This fest was opened to both Pre-University and Under-Graduate students of various fields. The club also conducts “Flashback”, a photography competition and exhibition. Humanities club organizes “Food Fiesta” where students are given the opportunity to prepare food and put up food stalls, the proceeds of which goes to charitable purpose.

YCC conducts guest lectures, social awareness programmes, competitions, workshops and visits to centres of learning. It also encourages students in writing columns in the in-house Journal, “Lantern”, on current issues. YCC strives to bridge the gap between the academics, corporate and society that helps the youth become corporate ready and knowledgeable.

Theatre Club was established in the year 2017-18. Theatreis a collaborative form of performing art that uses live performers, typically actors or actresses, to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place. Believing that drama is a vital and constructive force in society, the Club provides avenues to students to intimately acquaint themselves with techniques of theatrical events. It is a necessary element in the process of a liberal education, intending to provide a programme for the production and promotion of the college community, the cultural exchange of events with other institutions, the development of experimental workshops, the enrichment of creative talents, the goal of high aesthetic values, the responsibilities of representing the college throughout communities. The club was initiated to build confidence, concentration, communication skills, emotional intelligence and physical development. Theatre club organizes mime, street play and drama, creating social awareness on relevant topics, many a times collaborating with the Government of Karnataka. Theatre plays an active role to mark and celebrate all national festivals by performing events for the same. The entire theatre teams meet up once a week to discuss about the events coming up, team growth and individual growth to improve their performance.
