BWDA Arts and Science College was started in June 2008 by Dr. C. Joslin Thambi, Founder of BWDA to address the disparity in access to educational facilities for the poor and lead the marginalized towards intellectual prosperity and thereby empower them. Our college seeks to provide educational inclusion for the downtrodden, marginal labourers, illiterate agricultural coolies and poor people from most backward communities who aspire higher education for their children. BWDA Arts & Science College seeks to develop an equitable environment that fosters exemplary intellectual growth and amplify BWDA’s vision of a poverty free equitable society by using education as a tool for poverty alleviation.
BWDA Arts & Science College is affiliated to Thiruvalluvar University and offers nine undergraduate courses and six postgraduate courses. Our College is located in a quiet campus at Kolliyangunam, Mailam in Villupuram district. Our college offers B.A. English, B.Com, B.C.A. BBA, B.Sc. Physics, B.Sc. Chemistry, B.Sc. Mathematics, B.Sc.

Our college provides quality education at nominal fees, encourages the marginalized students to study with fee concessions and scholarships. The children of SHG members and bullock cart workers get 25% college fee (if they scored 800 marks out of 1200 marks) and 50% hostel fee concessions. We nurture the talent and creativity of our students and train them to commendably apply their novelty and acquired knowledge to solve real world problems, thus augmenting their aptitude to perform in a competitive and challenging environment.
