Singapore University of Social Sciences is the only local university that offers an undergraduate programme in Tamil language and literature. This degree programme caters to the needs of adults who aspire to enhance their competence and knowledge levels in Tamil language and literature. It is jointly developed by Singapore University of Social Sciences and scholars from Tamil Nadu. The programme is similar to that being offered in Tamil Nadu. At the same time, local content has been specially integrated into the curriculum to make it more relevant and palatable for students in Singapore. Furthermore, courses on linguistics and translation have been incorporated to suit our local needs of our bilingual society.
The language courses enhance students' understanding of linguistic concepts and language discourse from a functional grammar perspective. The literature courses offer an insight into a range of literary genres, periods and styles.
This programme admits students only for its July intake.
You may pursue Tamil Language and Literature as a single subject or in combination with a Minor.
Refer to Minor Courses for more details.
