Department of Arabic, Persian and Urdu


The University of Madras has as early as 1911 instituted an Oriental Faculty for the study of classical languages like Sanskrit, Arabic and Persian, which were then being taught in Oriental Colleges. The faculty perhaps comprised of some eminent scholars of these languages who formed something like the present Board of studies, for the purpose of framing the syllabus and designing the pattern of Examinations. Later in 1927, the University developed this faculty by instituting a separate unit in the form Oriental Research Institute with the purpose of bringing out from obscurity the outstanding works in Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Sanskrit.
