India is a country of enormous diversity: linguistic (22 official languages), religious, geographic, and economic. What are the defining features of modern India, and how has it stayed together in a world where many other large multi-ethnic states have fallen apart or lurched from crisis to crisis? This four-week program will provide a window on the major issues facing India, and how Indians understand and argue about their country’s past, present, and future. We rely on interactions with university students and faculty throughout our trip:
The program is structured as a three-credit honors course (ASIA 499) with some pre-departure reading, and a get-acquainted meeting in person or by Skype (for non-UP participants), with classes and assignments due periodically over the course of the trip, and with a final paper due after the end of the trip. For more details, check out a presentation about the program or review the program syllabus.
Summer: This program will not run in summer 2021, but hopes are that program operation will resume in 2022. Contact the faculty leader or check back for information about future travel on this program.
Regardless of the timing or reason for the withdrawal, the student will be responsible for paying the Education Abroad Administrative Fees. For faculty-led freestanding programs, there is a specific withdrawal penalty schedule.
Education Abroad makes every attempt at keeping the program and administrative costs to a minimum. However, when you commit to participating in a program, Education Abroad begins to make financial commitments on your behalf. In case of withdrawal, the following fees will be charged to your Bursar account
Upon Commitment - 90 Days Prior to Departure: 25% Program Fee + EA Admin Fee
30 - 89 Days Prior to Departure: 50% Program Fee + EA Admin Fee
29 Days - Departure Date: 100% Program Fee + EA Admin Fee
Following the start of the summer semester, any adjustment of tuition charges will be made according to the Tuition Adjustment Schedule as determined by the Office of the Bursar. More information can be found on the University Senate Policy on Withdrawal and Leave of Absence.
