Department of Tamil

Tamil is a classical language. Being a part of the Tamil department, our responsibility is to impart this to our students in an effective manner. Therefore, the syllabus is designed in such a way as to include all types of literature in Tamil. Moreover, the Tamil department focuses on developing attributes such as learning ability, analysing, and creativity in their students.
We have an association exclusive for Tamil enthusiasts called “Tamil Sangam”. Every year through Tamil Sangam inter-collegiate competitions, cultural programs, the Pongal festival, and such other activities are conducted. In the years to come, the Tamil department can assure that it will excel in all aspects.

Message from DEAN

Dear reader,

Greetings from the School of Languages and Literatures!

We believe that academic experiences can be joyful. 

Reading and writing are the means by which we begin asking ourselves who we are. They are also the means by which we begin to know the many worlds around us. The joy of learning moves us in these moments of discovery. 

The philosopher William James spoke of the experience of metanoia, a heartfelt understanding, a transformation from within. Every language class carries within it the potential to transform you for life, and that is why we take languages seriously at SJU.

St Joseph’s thus offers each of you an abundant joy in learning. 

Seize this opportunity!

Warm regards,

Dr Arul Mani

Dean, School of Languages & Literatures
