Program Description:
Alliance for Global Education (Contemporary India: Development, Economy, & Society)
The Contemporary India semester program introduces U.S. undergraduates to some of the most dynamic, exciting areas of Indian society, politics, economics, and culture today.
Environmental issues, development, social justice, economics and public health, in particular, are key areas in which India both faces unprecedented challenges and is on the global cutting edge of finding solutions. By providing a core academic base and allowing progressive specialization though electives, culminating in an internship, directed research project, or documentary film of the student's own choosing, the Alliance's Contemporary India program takes an interdisciplinary yet focused approach to these timely and provocative issues, both as they apply to India and in their global context.

Through this lens of Contemporary India, the Alliance seeks to turn highly-motivated, adventurous U.S. undergraduates from a wide variety of majors and academic interests into sensitive and sophisticated global citizens, with a nuanced understanding of complex international, regional, and local issues.
