Department of Persian

Department of Persian was established in 1985, and is playing a vital role in promoting and spreading Persian language and literature, which was the Court Language in the sub-continent before 1857. Our mission is to revive the glory of the Persian language & literature, which is one of the best philosophical literatures. It has rich linguistics as well as cultural background dating back to thousands of years in this part of the world. Persian is necessary to improve learning and teaching of Urdu and other local languages, and even in order to understand their Urdu poetry one must know Persian. There are also world class poets in Persian e.g. Saadi, Hafiz, Rumi etc. So the preservation and projection of our literary, linguistic and historical and cultural heritage requires learning of the language. Dearth of scholars in Persian is alarming and it is high time to learn Persian in order to make up for the loss already done. The department is offering BS, MPhil, PhD and different Certificate, Diploma and short courses about Rumi, Saadi, Attar, Hafiz, Ghalib and Iqbal. Large numbers of our graduates have been selected through PPSC and are serving at different colleges, universities, journalism and media, Pakistan Cultural & Studies Center, research organizations, NGOs, and in various private organizations at Pakistan and Iran.
