The Department of Urdu has started its journey from 01/08/2012 and it is Second department established in the School of Languages, Central University of Kashmir. The Department provides an intellectually nourishing and conducive atmosphere to the students aspiring to undertake an in-depth study of Urdu Literature in light of modern and post modern national and international socio-cultural conditions.  Department offers a variety of courses covering all the major genres, trends and movements of Urdu literature and Linguistics. The choice-based credit system allows the students to choose from a variety of elective courses that are offered in addition to the core courses. A comprehensive continuous internal assessment system ensures development of the intellectual capabilities of the students.

Since its establishment, the Department has progressed significantly. In a short span of time, it has carved a niche for itself as one of the most efficient departments in the university. The most defining feature of the department is that it has a committed, dynamic and dedicated staff. In this few years department organises a National Seminar and 5 lectures. The teachers have tried to move beyond the traditional methods of teaching and have succeeded considerably in making the practice of teaching more innovative, interactive and student-friendly. One of the priorities of the department has been the procurement of quality books for the departmental library as a result of which it has grown into a repository of valuable books. 

One of the stated aims of the department has been the development of literary and critical perception in the students which should ultimately enable them to place the major literary works of the Urdu as well as world literature in a proper literary perspective. Such diligent and serious study, needless to say, is ultimately expected to transform the students into individuals that can make a difference to the society.  

The Department offers Integrated M. Phil./Ph. D., Direct Ph. D. and Part Time Ph. D. and Now having  20 Research Scholars including direct and integrated M. Phil./Ph. D.
