Studying Indian Philosophy in India: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham

I received the following message from Prof. Manjushree Hegde, of the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Univerisity:

I write to you on behalf of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. I’d like to inform you that we offer a Masters program in (Indian and Western) Philosophy from Amrita Darshanam.
The core and elective courses of the program is structured to acquaint the student with Indian and Western philosophical thought — through four semesters, the student will methodically be introduced to Indian and European metaphysics, and logic and epistemology. Electives include a variety of topics like philosophy of tantra, advaita vedānta, aesthetics, South Indian philosophers (Tamil and Malayalam), etc. A detailed course plan can be found here: https://www.amrita.edu/admissions/ma-philosophy-2018/curriculum

Professors of repute include Veda Vāridhi Dr. P. Ramanujan, Dr. A. Ramaswamy Iyengar, and Dr. M. Ramakrishnan. Also, we regularly organize workshops and seminars to expose students to good scholarship — we recently conducted a workshop on Indian mathematics by Prof. K. Ramasubramanian, on the philosophy of language (Brahmakāṇḍa of Vākyapadīya) by Prof. Ashok Aklujkar, on Śabara-bhāṣya by Mani Dravida Sastry, etc.
