Assamese

About

The Department of Assamese was established to encourage study and research of Assamese language, literature and culture from a holistic point of view. The Department seeks to carry out this objective in the contexts of language, literature and culture of the North East India in general and of Assam in particular.
    The students of the Department are provided the opportunity to get acquainted themselves with the origin and development of Assamese language, literature and culture. In the process, they are also given ideas about the theoretical and practical developments in the East as well as in the West from the earliest times to the present day.
    Recently the Department has expanded the parameter of its study and research by introducing a few new programmes (such as the MPhil programme) and courses (such as a course in Translation Studies). The Department has received grants from the UGC under the Special Assistance Programme (SAP). Various events such as seminars, lectures and academic excursions are organized under this programme. Presently, the Phase-II of SAP is going on in the Department.
