Guided by the motto of empowering women, the department of Sanskrit of Jogamaya Devi College has been tirelessly engaged in the task of creating a bright future for our students. Since the inception in 1932, this department has been actively functioning with several renowned Sanskrit scholars as its faculty members and several alumni from this department holding key positions in the academic arena. Along with the traditional classroom teaching, application of computer aided gadgets such as power point presentations, digital classes etc., required in the contemporary education system, are opted for effective teaching. Additional classes besides the class routine are taken to enable the weaker students to catch up with the rest. Faculty exchange programmes with other colleges enable the students to have exposure to the recent developments of the subject. Organizing seminars and special lectures, conducting students' seminars etc. come under the regular annual programme initiated by our department. The department has the proud possession of a seminar library enriched with many textbooks and valuable reference books, some of which are rare and even out of print now.
