In the Faculty of Arts, four languages are taught viz. Gujarati, Hindi, Sanskrit and English. Among them, Gujarati and Hindi are offered as major or core compulsory subjects. Gujarati is also offered as major subject at PG level. Gujarati is the vernacular or the mother-tongue of most of the students. The Institution is situated in the rural area and is attached to many tribal areas in the vicinity. Most of the students come from the rural or tribal background. Therefore, language, be it a mother-tongue (Gujarati), or national language (Hindi) or dev-bhasha (Sanskrit) or global language (English), has always been a big constraint.
Language, as known to all, is a great tool for communication and a powerful medium to learn any subject. Many students coming from the tribal areas speak dialect of their region and hence their efficiency in Gujarati is not up to the mark. The written and spoken efficiency of students in all the above mentioned four languages are not satisfactory.
In this situation, the teaching of Gujarati as a major or minor or as a Foundation Course can improve the language proficiency of the students. The subject improves their writing and pronunciation. In the Foundation Course in Gujarati, students are taught Business Communication which can help them get job in private sectors.
Hindi is offered as a major subject at UG level in the Faculty of Arts. Hindi is the constitutionally approved National Language and therefore certain level of proficiency in it is needed in all the students.
