Central University to offer PG in Classical Tamil

The Central University here has decided to introduce a post graduate programme in Classical Tamil from this academic year, according to B.P.Sanjay, Vice Chancellor, Central University Tiruvarur.

He told presspersons here on 05 February, 2011, that the Course will be offered in collaboration with the Central Institute of Classical Tamil in Chennai.

A 15 – member expert group formed for this purpose will meet on February 23, 2011 at Chennai to discuss the course structure and other details.

“Many Universities offer post graduate programmes in Tamil. We wanted to be different and hence we chose classical Tamil. The course would be different from those offered at other Universities,” Mr. Sanjay said.

The Central University would also ink an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Madras School of Economics to offer post graduate programmes in the subject.

Two programmes, one on General Economics and another on Financial Economics, will be offered.

This year, the examination will cover five more universities.

The date of holding the common entrance examination will be fixed by the Vice Chancellors of these universities who will be meeting soon in Bangalore to discuss the matter.
