That our BA in Sanskrit includes a few courses without Sanskrit requirement
does not disqualify our BA as one in Sanskrit! It definitely focuses on the
Sanskrit language, as is specified on the first page to which I sent a link:
son objet principal est le sanskrit et ses littératures, dont elle met en
évidence la richesse: l’apprentissage du sanskrit s’y fait avant tout par
la lecture et la traduction intensives de textes appartenant à des genres
très différents (contes, épopée, poésie savante, littérature
historiographique, traités philosophiques, traités d’esthétique, etc.).
With all best wishes,
