Program Description:
Students on the India mini-term will move among various cities and towns, staying for one to three days at a stretch in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Kishangarh, Udipur, Mumbai, Varkala, Alleppey (on a houseboat) and Kumarokom.

Home to one-sixth of the world's population, India fascinates travelers with a woven mixture of old and new. From architecture and cuisines to languages and customs, the sheer diversity of the land, its people and their culture stretches the imagination.

Course of Study

Students will study Indian politics, heritage, history and culture. In addition to cities where students are based, specific excursion destinations may include the Taj Mahal. Also be prepared to do some studying on the beach.

Pre-requisites

None

Accommodations

Students will reside primarily in modest hotels with private baths during their stay in India. There are also several nights in a beach resort and a homestay, one night on a houseboat and one night in a YMCA.
