40-gruppe – Sanskrit (40SANS)

Om emnegruppen

Through the study of the ancient Indian language Sanskrit and the literature written in this language, the students will be equipped with well founded knowledge about the older (`classical´) Indian culture, but also about its present day impact and importance. Sanskrit, one of the oldest known Indo-European languages, has remained for more than 2500 years the most important and widely used literary and scientific language in the Indian subcontinent. Even today Sanskrit serves as a trans-regional language in many contexts. The focus of the program lies on classical Sanskrit and its literatures, including the present day applications of the language.


Students will

  • acquire basic language competence.
  • be familiar with the basic grammatical structures
  • be able to read elementary texts.

The 40-group is a good starting point for further independent work with Sanskrit texts.
