Department Overview

Head of Department: Mr. S. K. Dutta

The Department of Russian Language (to be renamed as the 'Department of Foreign Languages') was established in the year 1969 with Russian language offered as one of the Non–Credit courses for the research scholars of the University Campus. The same year, a Certificate of Proficiency; a Diploma Course in Russian Language in 1970; and in 1977, an Advanced Diploma Course in Russian Language and Literature, were started. Later on, the courses in French and German languages were added and started in the Department under the Self–Financing Scheme (SFS), namely, Certificate of Proficiency in French (since 2001–02); Certificate of Proficiency in German (2003–04); Diploma Course in French Language (2003–04); Diploma Course in German Language (2004–05); Advanced Diploma in French Language & Literature (2010–11). The Department is planning to introduce some more job–oriented and advanced–level courses in near future.

All the courses are part–time in nature, and can be pursued along with other full–time degree courses. Any of the languages can be studied at the Certificate Course level, without any previous knowledge of the same. The minimum qualification required for admission is (+2)/Higher Secondary/Intermediate in any discipline.

The Certificate courses aim at the acquisition of basic skills for communication by the learners, whereas the Diploma courses help in developing a working knowledge in the language concerned. In the Advanced Diploma courses, the students are introduced to the translation skills, as well as literature. The central objective of the courses is to proceed towards a bilingual competence for communication. And for achieving the said objectives, audio–visual materials are also used for teaching.

The Department has a well-equipped audio–visual room consisting of computers, LCD projectors, Visualisers, Digital Voice Recorders, TV, VCD and DVD-players, interactive software and films, which are regularly used for the benefit of the learners. The Department Library has adequate study material, and new titles are added every year. For the benefit of the learners, Invited/Guest Lectures and seminars are also held.

The course structures of all the languages have been designed by incorporating the recommendations of the U.G.C. Model Syllabi, and also keeping in view the increasing demand of foreign language specialists in the fields of management, trade, exports, computers and IT, hotel and tourism industry, etc., apart from that at various public and private enterprises. Apart from going elsewhere for higher studies, the pass-outs of this Department have found suitable placements in central universities; technical/professional institutes; public schools; hotel and tourism industry; MNCs like Wipro, oracle, Infosys, IBM, etc. For other details, please visit: www.foreignlanguagesmeerut.blogspot.in
