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:

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.
