Sanskrit instruction (and instruction in the humanities in general) is being cut at many universities, while at the same time 'real-world' interest in these topics is on the rise. Hence I thought it might be useful to get an overview of the existing 'alt-ac' institutions out there.
So far I am aware of
(Full disclosure: I teach the Introductory Sanskrit courses offered by Yogic Studies, and will be involved in the higher-level Sanskrit literature courses.)
I would be grateful for replies to this post
-- by anyone who can add to the above list of course offerings (i. e.: courses at a properly scholarly level, taught by academics, but not limited to students enrolled at one specific college or university)
-- by anyone at a college/university without a full Indology/Asian Studies department, interested in expanding the educational offerings available to their students by working together with such an alt-ac institution (the Yogic Studies three-term Introductory Sanskrit sequence, for example, is basically the same as the two-semester introduction I used to teach at Cornell; and Yogic Studies is beginning to build up co-operations with colleges/universities)
I will happily send a summary of such offerings/institutions to the List.
Thank you, and all the best,
