DEPARTMENT OF TAMIL
When our renowned Ethiraj College for Women was started in the year 1948, the Department of Tamil was established to teach Tamil language under Part II to the students of degree courses in Arts and Science.
The Tamil Department had also grown along with the growth of the college. Many stories, poetries , articles and drawing born out of the creative talents of the students much interested in Tamil, found place in magazines like ‘Tamil Aruvi’ .
The M.A Tamil course was started in the year 1986 and M.Phil was started in the year 1996. Consequent of this development, full time and part time Ph.D courses in Tamil were started from the year 2002.
Today twelve professors with Ph.D qualifications are now serving meritoriously in the Department. 7 students were completed their Ph.D and more than 100 students were completed their M.Phil Degree. We hope and believe that the Tamil Department will reach many more heights and add many more laurels to its credit.
