Eluru, the district headquarters of West Godavari District is known for its historical background and as a centre for educational institutions. Two decades ago opportunities for women to pursue higher education, beyond SSC were far from reality. The management of the parent institution, Sir C R Reddy College which has been in existence for the last six decades felt a dire need for a college exclusively for women congenial to the students. The inception of Sir C R Reddy College for Women made wide open the opportunities of girl students in and around Eluru.
The College was initiated with the vision and mission of imparting knowledge to women and providing an opportunity to them for pursuing higher education. Since then by the determined efforts and support of the management, encouragement and guidance of several philanthropists and complete involvement and hard work of the faculty the College has carved a niche for itself in the field of education.
Responding to the changing needs of the present day, the basic disciplines were multiplied into a range of subjects. The courses and programs are being re-organized, preparing and training the students to face the modern societal challenges so that they can compete with vigour and confidence when they step out of the College.
The College has been offering major groups in both Commerce and Science with important combinations. Courses offered in our college at intermediate level are MPC, BiPc, MEC and CEC, at Degree level - 9 combinations are offered in B.Sc., and 2 combinations are offered in B.Com.
