REL 217 - PLO Sanskrit I

4.00 credits.
(Power of Language Core Course)
This course is an introduction to Sanskrit, designed to develop basic reading competence as well as a general knowledge of grammatical principles, an elementary vocabulary, and a sense of the relationship of the structure of the Sanskrit language to classical Indian culture and philosophy. This course, if completed successfully, can also serve as a basis for further study of Sanskrit and other South Asian languages (i.e. Hindi, Bengali, etc.). It can also serve as a basis for the study of other ancient languages (given its cultivation of skills common to the study of a variety of such languages–the mastery of an alphabet other than the Roman, classical grammatical terms, etc.). Offered as needed.
