Program Overview

Program Description:

The India Winterim program allows students to explore their interests in a variety of settings in India. Each section is led by one or more UI faculty and has its own disciplinary perspective, for example: healthcare, engineering, education, business practices, social work, sustainability of natural resources, art and architecture, and others. Students work with Indian partner organizations employing a variety of techniques to address social issues. Specific courses vary each year. In 2016-2017, 85 students participated in 5 different courses.

The working language for all courses is English, although students are sure to come away with a few new phrases in one of several local languages. While each course is different, the weeks in India are devoted to learning about and developing solutions to real-world problems. The courses are taught through a combination of lectures given by University of Iowa professors, local representatives of partner organizations, and invited guest speakers, and most of the teaching/learning occurs outside the traditional classroom.
