School of Languages


Hindi was introduced in the Department of Oriental Languages as Part-1 Language in the year 1952. The Department has been catering to a multitude of students by equipping them with basic knowledge of Hindi through its Beginner Level and Advanced Level courses. Since the college became autonomous in 1978, the autonomy has given us greater freedom to frame new syllabi according to the changing needs and employment opportunities in various fields. This Department attracts students from different parts of India as well as overseas and the courses are carefully crafted on LSRW (Listen, Speak, Read & Write) Model to foster effective learning among students.

This Department was the first one in India to introduce Functional Hindi and Official Language Hindi at Undergraduate level as early as in 1978. In 1980, a course in Principles of Translation in Hindi was introduced. Another initiative taken by the department was the introduction of Banking Hindi in 1987 and Journalism in Hindi in 1990. Such courses equip students to face the challenges of the job market and create employability to skillfully work in Private and Government sectors. Our consistent efforts have yielded positive results in achieving academic excellence for the betterment of students.
