DEPARTMENT OF KANNADA

Kannada has been the second language in the curriculum ever since(1921 onwards) the inception of St. Agnes College. The department has etched for itself a place of pride owing to the contributions of both the staff and students of  Kannada over the years. The renowned poet and writer Kadengodlu Shankar Bhat who was a staff member for some time brought name and fame to the department. Prof. Gopalkrishna Paleppady too earned fame as a writer even as he was getting rooted as a teacher.

The students are given opportunities to improve their knowledge and skills in Kannada through literary assignments, additional reading, participating in discussions. They are given opportunities to participate in inter-collegiate competitions.

It is heartening to note that though Mangalore is a multi-lingual area,the students take interest in the study of Kannada. We take pride in the fact that Kannada is both an official and regional language of our area and our endeavour has been to maintain a fine balance between the functional and literary aspects of the language.
