Contemporary India: Development, Economy, Society
Sponsor: The Alliance for Global Education
Location: Pune, India
Description:The Contemporary India program introduces U.S. undergraduates to some of the most dynamic, exciting areas of Indian society, politics, economics, and culture today, such as development economics, environmental issues, social justice and public health. 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.
This program includes an internship or directed research opportunity. Read Internships and Service Learning and Research Abroad for details on how related coursework is eligible for credit transfer at Northwestern.
