Program Overview

Program Description:
India today is a country of contrasts: a modernizing economy in which village production continues to dominate, a vibrant democracy with an entrenched bureaucracy, a nuclear power in the place where nonviolent protest was born. The ACM India Studies program, located in Pune, is designed to provide students with an overview of these many aspects of Indian culture and society today.

The program begins in mid-August, with a three-week orientation, in which students begin an "Introduction to India" core course, study Marathi language intensively, and draw up a plan of research for their independent study projects. The regular term begins in early September, where students continue the core course and Marathi language, choose one of three elective courses (in political science, sociology, or environmental studies), and begin to carry out their independent study projects.

The Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) is a consortium of academically excellent, independent liberal arts colleges located in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Colorado. ACM has offered a wide variety of off-campus study programs around the world for over 40 years.
Setting Description:
A medium-sized city with a strong student life and culture, Pune is the quintessential university town. As a city of over three million, located in the state of Maharashtra, it offers students excellent resources for experience, exploration, and study.
