Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram, a Pontifical Athenaeum, has been in the forefront to provide quality higher education in the domain of ecclesiastical disciplines. As deeper learning and specialization in various subjects call for familiarization of the scholars in different languages, DVK has established the Dharmaram Institute of Languages (DIL). It offers basic as well as advanced courses in classical and modern languages, which are open to interested students from DVK and other educational institutions. As language is a basic tool for the training in any academic discipline, DVK believes in offering ongoing quality training in different languages with an earnest hope that language skills would finally contribute towards the better academic performance and quality enhancement in the future ministries undertaken by its candidates
DVK offers these courses as it has got both the required infrastructures and qualified professors to offer effective training to the candidates.
If any particular group or institution is interested to conduct specific languages courses, DIL would provide customized programmes based on the demand
