BA (Sanskrit – Darśanas) programme enables the student to develop not only a good understanding of the Sanskrit Language but also the important philosophical schools of thought in India. Moreover, the students will also be exposed to Western philosophical thought.
The elective courses will help students take up some of these topics to even greater study. Comparative study of the Indian and Western philosophical thoughts is also offered as elective course. The minor options also include topics such as Marketing and Personnel Management. The overall design of the programme prepares the students to either take up higher studies and research or employment in their area of interest.
