Marinduque State College: Diamond Jubillee celebration today


Marinduque State College (MSC), the only state college in Marinduque celebrates its 60th founding anniversary today. Established on June 21, 1952, through R.A. No. 805 authored by Cong. Panfilo M. Manguera, during the presidency of Pres. Elpidio Quirino. It was then known as Marinduque School of Arts and Trades (MSAT), offering two-year vocational courses such as Machine Shop Practice, Electricity, Automotive Mechanics, Building Construction, Furniture and Cabinet making, Garments Trade, Cosmetology and Food Trades. It also opened with a four-year secondary trade curricula.


MSAT then came to be known as the Marinduque Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), in 1983, providing more opportunities for students to take up courses in Civil Engineering, Fisheries, and Trade Technical Education. A satellite campus in Torrijos was then opened. By 1998, a Graduate Studies Program was introduced, alongside the opening of more satellite campuses in Sta. Cruz and Gasan. It came to be known by its present name, Marinduque State College.

It actively pursues its role as an institution of higher learning and its mission of providing quality education through effective methodologies and strategies. Today, courses in Engineering, Allied Medicine, Entrepreneurship, Communication and Tourism, and Information Technology are among those offered in addition to Industrial Technology and Secondary Teacher Education.

MSC is committed to achieve status as a premier college in the region along the fields of instruction, research, extension and production.

MSC students join this morning's parade from Boac town to the College located in
Barangay Tanza in the Riverside District. Some 6,000 students are currently
enrolled at all the MSC campuses combined.

The conversion of MSC into a university, as Marinduque State University,
is vigorously pursued at present.

The future MSU will further benefit poor but deserving students not just from Marinduque but also from neighboring provinces who cannot afford to pursue higher education. The university is seen as a unique resource bringing extensive economic benefits to the school and to the provincial community in terms of highly skilled graduate workforce it is committed to produce. 

Thus, the best is yet to come for Marinduque State College that today marks its Diamond Jubilee Anniversary with special activities also retrospecting its history.
