In this holy land, assimilation of the cultures of the Austrics, the Drvidians and the Aryans took place. Geographically, Odisha provides a culture corridor that connects the North with the South. The sea-faring activities and maritime glory made it the most attractive destination of the eastern coast of India. Successive tides from all sides surged up, rolled in and broke over this land culminating in cultural synthesis. This passage over ages transcended the traditional vision of culture.

  20. 20. A Comprehensive Study: Utkal University of Culture, Bhubaneswar by Santosh Kumar Jha|20 10. Faculty of Culture Studies 1. M.A. in Culture Studies: The pioneering program aims at providing an institutional set up for innovative study of culture. Apart from providing conceptual classifications of the loaded term ‘Culture’, the program provides insights into ‘culture studies’. The program aims at liberating the study of culture in India from the confines of disciplinarian discourses, such as Anthropology, Sociology, History, Tribal Studies and Gender Studies, and to establish it as subject of study in its own right. It is, therefore, an interdisciplinary endeavor, seeking to explore the poetics of culture, not just of the past, but of the recently globalised world context. It seeks to acquaint the students with knowledge of the vast diversity of human culture in time and space and its multifarious multidisciplinary approach in understanding culture with special reference to Odishan and Indian culture. Due emphasis is given to philosophical, ethnic and value-oriented approaches to the study of culture. The core objective is to inculcate in the minds of the present and future generations a world perspective with a visible, perceptible local identity through comprehensive dissemination and arousing of cultural consciousness. The study of tribal and folk cultures constitutes an integral part of this program. This unique subject is first gaining ground in the Euro-American Academia. With the diverse socio-culture trends in India, the study of culture would provide countless opportunities in making a prospective career.
  21. 21. A Comprehensive Study: Utkal University of Culture, Bhubaneswar by Santosh Kumar Jha|21 2. M.A. in Buddhist Studies: Odisha is one of the few states in India which has a rich treasure of Buddhist monuments. M.A. Course in Buddhist Studies is designed to acquaint the students with the history and rich cultural heritage of Buddhism in the country as well as in the state of Odisha. The University offers the course to train the students to work in A.S.I. museums and institutions working in this filed in our country and abroad. 3. M.A. in South and South-East Asian Studies: Studies on South and South-East Asia are abundantly relevant to Odishan history and culture. The great maritime tradition of ancient Odisha establishes an unbroken linkage with countries of South and South-East Asia. The cultural interaction between the Kalinga and the South-East Asian countries constitute important chapters of respective histories. Hence, further studies on this aspect of Odishan history are relevant because of inadequacy of works in the field. Emergence of regional cooperation has become a global trend in the past few decades. South Asia and South-East Asia are such regional identities, politically endorsed by SAARC and ASEAN. The ‘Looking East’ policy of India in recent times has given a new thrust for a comparative and comprehensive study
  22. 22. A Comprehensive Study: Utkal University of Culture, Bhubaneswar by Santosh Kumar Jha|22 of the said regions. Among the new Indian Universities, which got the cue, the Utkal University of Culture is the first to introduce an M.A. program in South and South-East Asian Studies with a stress on the region’s classical as well as contemporary culture including study of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. 4. M.A. in Tourism and Hospitality Services (Self-Finance): The University offers Master’s Degree program, which combines practical experience with class room theory to prepare the students to gain full-fledged understanding, skills and techniques needed to qualify for job opportunities, self-entrepreneurship and to achieve one’s career goals in the growing Tourism and Hospitality Industry sector. As a matter of fact, tourism and hospitality services have acquired the status of an industry with potential of earning foreign exchange and generating employment opportunities. With cooperation of hospitality industry, the University has created an internship program which utilizes the hotels, resorts, restaurants, travel agencies, transportation companies, catering houses, clubs, airlines, cruise ships etc. as practice labs for students. The course curriculum is so designed having a judicious combination of papers belonging to both tourism and hotel management streams and thereby enriches the prospective job opportunities. The course prepares the students to develop their enterprising skills and makes them confident to
  23. 23. A Comprehensive Study: Utkal University of Culture, Bhubaneswar by Santosh Kumar Jha|23 determine the financial feasibility of investment in hospitality industry. One of the aims of the course is to provide qualitative inputs in the tourism sector. Course Objectives: I. To educate and train students for responsible positions in tourism and hospitality related industries, II. To provide conceptual knowledge along with contemporary world situation analysis and problem solving experience, III. To prepare high level professional managers who can commendably work as cultural ambassadors. 5. Certificate Course in Jain Religion & Philosophy: Certificate Course in Jain religion & Philosophy is the only one of its kind in the Universities across the country. Jainism, the oldest among world religions has substantially enriched the tradition and culture of India and Odisha in particular. The course envisages making the students conversant with Prakrit language, Jain art, architecture, philosophy, ethics and religion.

  25. 25. A Comprehensive Study: Utkal University of Culture, Bhubaneswar by Santosh Kumar Jha|25 11. Faculty of Architecture and Archeology Master of Cultural Heritage and Conservation: Conservation of cultural heritage has acquired global importance and attention in recent times. It has become a topic that has crossed national boundaries. As the word ‘culture’ stands for wider connotations, today, cultural heritage and conservation cover hitherto a wider range of knowledge such as environment, ecology, films, audio recordings etc. Advancements in science and technology have made it possible for new perspectives in the ideas and techniques of conservation. The cultural heritage of Odisha is vast and rich, especially in the areas of pre-history, temple art and architecture, palm leaf manuscripts, folk and tribal heritage, crafts, ecology and environment. The course is designed to attain the following objectives: 1. To provide art awareness of the rich and diverse cultural heritage of Odisha. 2. To provide sound theoretical knowledge in archaeology, musicology and conservation. 3. To have an academic as well as professional skill and to train the students practically in the art and science of conservation.

M.A. in Sociolinguistics (Self-Finance): Sociolinguistics has now emerged as an important branch of social sciences. Even though it has evolved today into an interdisciplinary study with western methodological orientation, it is not a stranger to Indian academia. Pioneering attempts of sociolinguistic approaches can be found in the Indian tradition of Grammar and Philology. Along with language studies the subject incorporates the social and developmental factors which add an applied interdisciplinary module to the subject. The study draws its methodology from disciplines like sociology, linguistics, literature, culture studies etc. Such an interdisciplinary approach has wide and perspective career. Therefore, the study can be of immense help to professionals like teachers, teacher-educators, speech therapists, information technologists, community developers, translators, literary workers, and other social scientists. 2. Certificate Course in Tamil Language: The Tamil Development Department, Govt. of Tamil Nadu has established a Tamil Chair in Utkal University of Culture since 2001 for Tamil language,
