Programmes offered by LLS

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Sanskrit is a popular programme across all universities, not only in India, but also abroad. The unique feature of this programme is to give a detailed introduction to various disciplines of Sanskrit. lt places special emphasis on three streams viz.. Vyākaraṇa, Advaita Vedānta and Sāhitya. Apart from Sanskrit, the students will be able to secure knowledge of other streams such as Linguistics, Finance, Management, Governance, Psychology and Leadership, by opting for the Minor courses offered in these areas.

The Master of Arts (MA) in Sanskrit is an innovative programme that aims to upgrade the conventional postgraduate courses in Sanskrit and Sanskrit Studies, by offering traditional śāstraic topics along with their contemporary counterparts. The emphasis of the MA programme is on enabling students to be equally comfortable in the roles of the pundit and the modern academician. The courses are taught with particular attention to demonstrating the continuities as well as differences between traditional and current disciplines, to give students a realistic understanding of the relevance of ancient knowledge.
