Foreign enrollment in BHU’s Kashi study course is

Banaras Hindu University (BHU) is planning to start postgraduate (PG) courses in Varanasi, one of the oldest cities in the world. The course will be called ‘Kashi studies’ and the session will start in July 2021. The course will be offered by the University’s Department of History under the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Kaushal Kishore Mishra, dean of BHU’s Faculty of Social Sciences, told the Education Times that the decision to start the course directly attracts people, due to the curiosity of the people to know about Kashi, because the city has a large number of people every year Visitors or tourists arrive.

Faculty members are to develop the syllabus for the two-year PG course by 26 December. After finalizing the syllabus of the syllabus, it will be presented to the Academic Council and the Executive Council for suggestions and amendments.

The expert committee includes some of Kashi’s renowned artists and academics, including folk singer Malini Awasthi, journalist (or lyricist?) Amitabh Bhattacharya and Padma Shri Awardee Rajeshwar Acharya, a Hindustani classical singer from Varanasi.

Says Mishra, ‚ÄúSocial science students from India and abroad, who want to understand the mystery of Kashi, can join this course. We hope that this course will receive positive response from international students as foreigners are inspired by the traditional history and culture of India, music and sculpture of Kashi. ”

The university is yet to decide the admission criteria, if the aspirant must do the entrance examination, educational qualification or qualitative analysis for the individual examinations. Furthermore, there is no clarity on the total seats offered in the course.

According to UP government figures, 64, 47,775 domestic and 3,50,000 foreign tourists visited Varanasi in 2019. After attracting tourists to the region, students can join the tourism department after completing the course and get knowledge of the city.
