Five Year Integrated MA :

Name of the course -     5 Year integrated MA in Sanskrit.

Salient features :

All the Sanskrit subjects are taught in Sanskrit only excepting one or two subject in the first semester.

The specialization in the Shastri-Acharya type of syllabus begins right after 10th Standard. The specialization in all the BA and MA courses of Samskrit is just in the MA second year. However, we begin the specialization at the 3rd year of the BA partially and fully in MA 1st year.

            1. This helps students to identify their subjects of interesst giving more flexibility and freedom to the student regarding                           subject choice.

            2. Just concentrating on one's specialized area as per the traditional way of sanskrit pedagogy makes students alien to                         other streams of knowlodge in sanskrit. However, this impairs the progress of students on other fronts. Hence, the                               specialization at 3rd year equips the students to know other streams as well.

            3. In modern system the students don't get proper hold of his area of specialization as the syllabus covered in insufficient to                 call it a specialization.

            4. Integrated MA integrates the positives of traditional and modern system and removes the demerits of both the systems.

All the exams of Samskrit are to be written only in Devanagari script and in Samskrit language.
