The Muslim College of Education has started a peer- reviewed biannual national journal titled Teacher Learner and Society (TeLes) in the year 2013 with the ISSN 2348-8409. The warm recognition to the TeLeS, by the intelligentsia, inspired us to start an international journal titled International Journal of perspectives in Education, (IJPE)with the ISSN 2456-3412 in 2016. It is also a peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary international journal. Realising the feasibility of starting integrated courses the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) granted the Muslim College of Education, permission to start 4 year B.A.B.Ed. and B.Sc.B.Ed integrated courses from the academic year 2017 -2018. Only 8 colleges of education in Tamil Nadu have such a credential status.
