Programme Structure

  • The unfortunate partition of India in 1947 served a severe set-back to the Panjab University and this dismembered body of higher education was scattered with its Departments at Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar, Delhi, Shimla and Solan. It regained its lost glory very quickly and established itself in the newly constructed capital of the Indian Punjab at Chandigarh. Since then there has been no looking back.  Amongst several disciplines taught at the University, the Indic studies received due recognition and an independent Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture and Archaeology was established in 1961.
