BA South Asian Studies (Sanskrit Pathway) and ...

SOAS University of London
Campus Full time 3 years September 2019 Singapore

Sanskrit has functioned for over two thousand years as the basic vehicle of classical Indian literature. It is the key to a first-hand understanding of the vast field of classical Hindu religion and philosophy, being the language of the Vedas and Upanishads, the great epics of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata and the texts of Vedanta and Yoga. It is also an important language for the study of Buddhism, Indo-European comparative philology, and the achievements of the classical civilization of India in such wider fields as aesthetic theory, linguistics, law and political theory, medicine, mathematics, and astronomy. The Sanskrit pathway is designed to give students a high level of competence in reading and understanding a wide range of Sanskrit texts, and a good knowledge of their cultural context. We also encourage students to learn Pali and Prakrit. The pathway assumes no previous knowledge of Sanskrit or its script, though we do prefer candidates to have some record of successful language-learning, for example, an A-level qualification in a European language. Students with previous knowledge of Sanskrit will be accommodated in a higher level module. [+]
