About

On the India: Development Studies and Hindi Language program, you’ll
immerse yourself in a country that embraces both the dynamic forces of
globalization and the deep-rooted traditions of an ancient culture.

 

The program has two schedule
options. The spring semester program brings a comparative context to your study
of India by exploring two different regions of the country: Maharashtra and
Rajasthan. The winter quarter/trimester option includes only the 11 weeks in
Pune.

 

Both schedule options begin in
Pune, Maharashtra, where you’ll take a course focused on economic development
and study Hindi language. A practicum experience with a community organization
will give you a firsthand view of Indian social and economic issues to complement
your coursework.

 

On the semester option, you will
then move to Jaipur, a city known for its cultural festivals and splendid forts
and palaces. There, you’ll deepen your cultural immersion with intensive Hindi
language study and opportunities to volunteer with local organizations.

 

The program includes a homestay in
each city, as well as a variety of local and regional field trips to sites of
historical and cultural significance. The semester option includes a one-week
break for independent travel.
