Descripción

This page describes and outlines the Hindi Language Pathway through the BA South Asian Studies (4 years) and BA South Asian Studies and... (4 years) degrees.

Hindi is the official language of India and is spoken across the northern states from Rajasthan in the west to Bihar in the east, and from Himachal in the north to Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh towards the south. It is very closely related to Urdu, and somewhat less closely to neighbouring languages such as Punjabi, Gujarati, Bengali and Nepali with which it shares the inheritance of Sanskrit.

Hindi is the first language of several hundred million speakers, and the second language of many more; it has a rich modern literature, while its regional dialects such as Braj Bhasha and Awadhi are the historical vehicle for religious and court poetry of the medieval period.

The Hindi pathway is designed to give students a high level of competence in speaking, understanding, reading and writing Hindi, and a good knowledge of its cultural context. It assumes no previous knowledge of Hindi 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 Hindi will be accommodated in a higher level module.

Students must take modules to the value of 4 units in each year of their degree. If a student passes 4 module units in one Pathway Language then the language will be named in the degree title, i.e. BA South Asian Studies (Hindi). Text, Directed Readings and literature modules, and an Independent Study Project in which the language is used to a large extent all count as language modules.
