Welcome to SSC, Thailand

Thailand is a prominent country of Southeast Asia, where Sanskrit study has been promoted for a long time. Thai and other Southeast Asian languages have strong roots in Sanskrit, which reflects their remote past relationship with Sanskrit. Sanskrit has a deep influence on Thai literature and culture as well. The royal family here has high regard for Sanskrit learning. The old and leading institutions like Silpakorn University, Chulalongkorn University, Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University, Mahamakuta-rajavidyalaya University etc. have included Sanskrit in their study programmes.

Silpakorn University is one of the earliest universities, where Sanskrit has been offered for more than forty-five years. Here Sanskrit has been included in the curriculum at Bachelor level of the Faculty of Archaeology since its inception in 1955. The Department of Oriental Languages was established in this faculty in 1974, and Sanskrit was included in its Masterís curriculum. The Department has so far produced graduates with Masterís degree in Sanskrit and in Epigraphy of Ancient Oriental Languages; and in 2000, the Doctorate degree in Sanskrit has been introduced in the department.
