School of Languages (about School)
Since its inception in 2010, the School of Languages at Doon University has been an emerging trendsetter not only in Uttarakhand but also outside the state. Ourfive-year integrated Masters programmes in various foreign languages (Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Spanish), draw students and scholars from all across the world. Our two-yearMasters programme in English is rapidly gaining ground, becoming a force to reckon with.The five-year integrated foreign language programmes have the added advantage of giving students the option to exit after completing three years of graduation for a Bachelors degree. Likewise, those having a requisite background in the respective foreign language may opt for lateral entry at the two-year Masters level through an entrance exam.
The School aims at research and development at an inter-departmental level under the aegis of SoL-Dialogue, SoL-Screen and SoL-Expressions. It prides its internationally trained and research oriented faculty, state-of-the-art Multimedia Laboratories as well as Memorandums of Understanding with European universities and international educational bodies.
Academic support is also drawn from various prestigious institutions such as Jawaharlal Nehru University, University of Delhi, Jamia Millia Islamia in the form of academicians’ regular visits for workshops, advisory committee meetings and as adjunct faculty in various departments.
Our extremely efficient Placement Cell at both the School and University level has helped students get placements in reputed companies, the ever-demanding tourism sector as well as academic institutions. A large number ofstudents have been the beneficiaries of foreign scholarships.
