Department of Hindi
The Department offers a two-year Masters course comprising 12 compulsory and 4 optional papers. The syllabus covers a period of nearly ten centuries (from the eleventh to the twentieth century). Texts representing the main trends in Hindi literature are prescribed as basic reading. Besides, there are courses in the history of literature, linguistics (Hindi based) and the theories of literature (Indian and Western).
In addition to all the options taught at the North Campus, South Campus offers exclusive options, namely, Sociology of Literature and Comparative Literature.
The Department offers a one-year P.G. Hindi Journalism Certificate Course and a two-year P.G. Hindi Journalism Diploma course. The Department also offers a one-year M Phil programme. Emphasis is laid on general trends, literary sensibility and ethos rather than on specific texts or authors.
