The components of the course over Five years (10 Semesters) adequately cover the syllabus required for the subject opted at the B.Sc/B.A and M.Sc./M.A levels, Tamil and English at the degree level and Education at the Degree level(B.Ed.)

The introduction of two papers on Indian Culture and Ethics is intended to inculcate in the students essential and enduring values based in Indian culture and Dharma, a component which is lacking in curriculum of most other institutions. A teacher with complete awareness of moral and ethical values will be able to impart the same to his students. This component is vital to Youth in their formative years in this materialistic world, which Dr.Radhakrishnan termed 'an ample body with meager soul'
