CUET Sanskrit Syllabus 2024

19 January, 2024 By Artika Shah, IMS India

As one of the classical languages of the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European languages, Sanskrit has been studied by Western scholars since the late 18th century. As many Indian texts, including religious scriptures and literary works, are written in Sanskrit, Sanskrit has been studied in Indian schools as a means of connecting students with India’s rich cultural and religious heritage. Students can become teachers, pursue doctoral degrees, and become professors, translators, poets, and writers by studying Sanskrit.
