India

Leave your perceptions at the temple door

India is a country known for its innumerable deities, mouth-searing dishes, elaborate weddings, and multicolored sarees. Once you venture past these cliches, however, you realize that few places offer as many bold and unique experiences to the travelers willing to seek them out.

In previous terms, we’ve called the cities of Hyderabad and Mumbai home, but moving forward students might find themselves conducting projects on Goa’s golden beaches. All of that will be determined in the near future, with our students’ best interests in mind.

Regardless of our host city, India promises plenty of opportunities to get out and explore, and in past terms students have learned about water potability by analyzing samples from the sacred River Ganges, observed extreme poverty during a tour of the Dharavi megaslum, interviewed survivors of the Bhopal industrial disaster, and picked tea during lessons on entrepreneurship in Kerala.

Projects during our India term are wide-ranging and community focused. In recent terms, students have gained an understanding of the sustainability issues linked to population distribution and density by exploring urban city planning in Mumbai, examined how mathematical thought processes have evolved from different ancient cultures, and helped local Warli artists make the transition to the online marketplace as opportunities in their rural villages dwindle.

Planned Projects

  • Adapting Indian e-commerce, business, and economic solutions to benefit a charitable or non-profit organization in students’ home countries

  • Examining India’s contributions to the field of mathematics and comparing/contrasting them with the mathematical developments of Western countries

  • Studying sustainability issues linked to population distribution and densities in the world by exploring how urban planning is achieved in India

ON VISITING THE HOLY CITY OF VARANASI

“To say that I toured the holiest city in the world alongside some of my best friends and visited the tree under which Buddha was enlightened was something I never thought I’d be able to do.”
