Welcome to the Department of Sanskrit

The Department of Sanskrit of the college is one of the oldest ones having completed eleven years of Honours teaching. The young Department has a wonderful past and very enthusiastic present paving the way for the impressive days of the future. It nurtures the untamed youth that manifests itself in diverse forms. The distinguished guest teachers who have served or are serving this department over the years, try to make a safe haven for learning and cooperation. A lively academic and cultural ambience and a very cordial teacher-pupil relationship have always been and hopefully will be the distinctive characteristic of the department. Due to severe shortage of funds and space the department does not have a separate seminar/departmental library but the central library has more than 500 titles dedicated to Sanskrit studies. Within the strict, limited capacity the department tries to organize students’ seminar, workshops to facilitate the students.

Sanskrit literature and language have been an integral part of the courses offered in various universities in India since pre-Independence days. Since the inception of Vidyasagar University, this course has been introduced in the undergraduate courses in constituent colleges. And the syllabus in Sanskrit Literature has been designed to identify the signposts of Sanskrit culture from the Vedic periods. Different points of the syllabus have incorporated ideas, events, personalities, and texts that formed the backbone of each period with clear awareness of parallel or related trends in the continent. The courses also have been designed to acquaint the students with the history of the Sanskrit language both synchronic and diachronic, keeping in mind the different elements such as influences, borrowings and changes over the centuries.

Keeping the above view in mind our department try-

  •  To provide all information regarding the scope and opportunities of this subject.
  •  To impart the lessons in such a way that the students feel they always surrounded by economic phenomenon in their day-to-day life.
  •  To make students more equipped with this subject by taking class seminars, class test and by completion of syllabus in due time.
  •  To make the knowledge perfect and matured and attain finality

For teaching purpose, the most common method, used by the departmental teachers, is chalk and talk. We have one smart class room and other class rooms. Apart from delivering lectures and distributing class notes, students are given different web links to collect study materials (YouTube, Digital Library & Google Classroom). Department prepares a semester wise lesson plan for proper teaching and to complete the allotted syllabus in due time. Students are also encouraged to participate in class seminar and group discussions on a regular basis. As a part of Internal Assessment (10 mark for each Honours & General paper) we take 2 class tests for each honours paper and 2 class test for each General paper.

The Sanskrit (Hons.) undergraduate course is designed to introduce students with the various traditions of Sanskrit literature and language. The different courses of the Sanskrit undergraduate Programme is created in such a fashion that the students get an idea and taste of the Sanskrit literature that developed in Sanskrit soil .

  • The Programme tries to make the students understand the different periods of Sanskrit literature and explore how creative resources are used in poetry, fiction, prose and drama. It tries to focus on Literary/Cultural studies which help to develop intellectual acumen and a better understanding of human life and experience.
  • The new UG syllabus under CBCS also includes Indian Classical Writings, Indian Bhasha literatures along with the contemporary literary This will help students develop their analytical and argumentative skills and also endow them with the knowledge of their own literary tradition – both classical and contemporary Indian Bhasha literatures.
  • The main rationale of the Programme is to acquaint students, who have just stepped in to the threshold of higher education, with an overall idea of literature, develop their critical insights, understand the reception of texts and make them familiar with scholarly
  • The new syllabus of studying literary and cultural texts is structured in such ways that it helps students think deeply about socio cultural issues of race and gender. It helps to develop the reasoning faculty of the mind and understand the cross cultural issues of influence and reception.

The Programme also helps to develop skills of writing in Sanskrit which will position students in good stead in the job market.

Our department has one sanctioned post against substantive vacancy. At present our department has one full time teacher against substantive post, and two fulltime state aided college teachers.
