Department of Sanskrit

  • Sanskrit is the key to the civilizational treasures of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, and provides direct access to a vast repository of literary, scientific and philosophical wisdom. It is the primary language of classical Indian art, music, dance, literature and religion.
  • Students learn to read and write in Devanagari script and this enhances their skills in making digital posters, composing poems and writing scripts for theatres and plays in Sanskrit.
  • We actively encourage students in scripting the ‘Natya’(Sanskrit drama) which is an interdisciplinary activity with the Department of Visual & Performing Arts.
  • Students have the choice to specialize either in ‘Sahitya’ or ‘Vyakaran’.
  • Classes are conducted only in Sanskrit.
  • A student can evolve as a language researcher, news reader, translator in scientific literary, technical or business fields. Freelancers can join archaeological teams, research forums, publishing houses and international organizations to name a few. They can also take up teaching role.
