Department of Hindi – Overview
Our National Language Hindi is taught as Additional Language Course in U C College. Though we don’t have a full – fledged department in the college , a good number of students prefer Hindi as Second Language. The aim is to make students proficient in the use of Hindi as medium of communication and as Official Language. They are taught different aspects of Hindi Literature for inculcating Socio – Cultural values. In addition to this , the students are also given guidance to develop Communicative and Technical skills in Applied Hindi. It is a notable feature that a good percentage of students who have taken Hindi as the Additional Language in Graduation level have achieved praiseworthy success in their career.
