In the current educational scenario it has become imperative to look beyond the traditional education systems in order to address the world’s growing and changing needs. Our institution has continuously responded to this emergent need to cater to the demand of appropriate technology fostering and elevated thinking, effective communication, problem solving and global competence among students. A combination of traditional and modern learning methods in the classroom incorporates both face-to-face and online learning opportunities for our students. This, together with the use of open educational resources and other technologies can increase educational productivity of the teachers by accelerating the rate of learning, reducing costs associated with instructional materials or programme delivery and better time management. MMC has state-of-the-art infrastructure and learning resources.

Environmental Consciousness and Sustainability
Magadh Mahila College is committed toward maintaining a greener and eco-friendly campus. Students and staff of the institute are educated on proper waste management practices through lectures, advertisements on notice boards, and slogan boards on the campus. Solid wastes are segregated into coloured dustbins kept for biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste throughout the campus. Bio-manure is prepared from organic solid wastes such as leaves of plants and residues from mess of campus hostels. The college promotes paperless functioning and minimal paper waste. The institute takes efforts to minimize e-waste by repairing the computer and electronic components. E-wastes are collected and stored in the storeroom.
College believes in fundamentals of energy conservation. A 100 KWp solar power plant has been installed on the roof of main building of MMC, which is providing a renewable source of energy. The solar power plant saves electricity bill of the college by about 40% every month. To conserve energy regular bulbs and tube lights have been replaced by CFL and LED lamp. They consume around 80-90% less energy and also last around 10-20 times longer. Staff and students are advised to turn off lights and fans when they are not being used.
