Program Overview

Program Description:
Pune, an urban hub and academic center, provides an ideal setting in which to study contemporary India. Our Summer in Pune program combines a required core course and a field study component of either an internship or directed research, for an intensive seven-week seminar.

Explore contemporary India as a complex yet unified multi-cultural, multi-linguistic, religiously pluralistic democracy and rising major global power. Pursue your own academic interests and distinguish yourself professionally by completing an internship or directed research project. Participate in a field excursion that introduces you to another side of India. Live like a Pune resident with an Indian host family and commute to campus via auto rickshaw.

The program price includes tuition and fees, housing, pre-departure materials, guidance on applying for a visa, orientation, cell phone, weekly activities, field study trip and/or long weekend trip varying by term and program, textbooks, the services of a full-time resident staff, and medical and evacuation insurance.

Setting Description:
Pune, a vibrant, bustling city that has long been considered India’s academic center, offers students a stimulating exposure to the best and most intriguing elements of contemporary India. Only a short train ride from the booming metropolis of Mumbai, Pune is home to many of India’s top academic institutions and has a thriving student scene. Pune hosts many of the country’s most forward-thinking NGOs and is a striking example of the “new India,” with technology and international business rapidly bringing a new, fascinating dimension to its multi-faceted urban landscape.
