The Department of Languages, Cultural Studies and Performing Arts

The Department of Languages, Cultural Studies and Performing Arts can be considered one of the oldest departments in the university since one of the subjects taught in it, Sanskrit, was taught from the inception of the Vidyodaya University in 1959, formally known as the Vidyodaya Pirivena, established in 1875. Sanskrit was then taught under the Faculty of Languages. These languages were taken under the Faculty of Arts subsequently and given to the Department of Languages and Cultural Studies which was established in 1972. In 2014, the name was changed into The Department of Languages, Cultural Studies and Performing Arts.
