In a bid to move away from relying on English as a medium for Master’s degree courses, Kerala’s Thunchath Ezhuthachan Malayalam University is considering the proposal to make learning MSc Computer Science, MBA and MCom courses possible in Malayalam. 

Popularly known as the Malayalam University, the university finds that these subjects are amenable to be taught in Malayalam. University vice-chancellor K Jayakumar in a press conference on Thursday said that there is no need to rely on English for teaching management courses. 

“We feel that there would be enough job opportunities in the state for those who have earned postgraduate degrees imparted in Malayalam”, Jayakumar said in the press conference

He also pointed that four years after becoming functional, the University has proved that non-language subjects can be taught in Malayalam. The proposal to teach MBA, MSc in Computer Science and master’s degree in Library Science is part of the University’s plan to offer more PG courses in Malayalam.

“There are many major home-grown businesses here and they would find our MBA graduates more attractive. Likewise those who have learnt library science in Malayalam will not be found lacking, but will be more equipped to handle our libraries," Jayakumar said, reports the Times of India

The University is also collaborating with English-language publishers to bring out translations of works of noted writers from the state.

The University has a slew of other projects on the anvil like developing a phonetic corpus for Malayalam to make Malayalam more computer friendly, a mobile game to help learn Malayalam alphabets and launching a Malayalam online dictionary.

Located at Tirur in the northern district of Malappuram, the University came into existence in 2012. Thunchanparamp in Tirur is the birth place of Thunchath Ezhuthachan, known as the father of Malayalam language.
