with the Alliance for Global Education:
Contemporary India: Development, Economy, Society
  • Explore contemporary India as a complex yet unified multi-cultural, multi-linguistic, religiously pluralistic democracy, and rising economic superpower through 15 credits of coursework.
  • Pursue your own academic interests and distinguish yourself professionally by completing an internship, directed research project, or documentary film on a topic of your choosing.
  • Engage with Indian culture through co-curricular classes in traditional Indian vocals, instruments, or dance.
  • Participate in local activities and field visits that highlight the differences between urban and rural life in contemporary India.
  • Live like a Pune resident with an Indian host family and commute to campus via auto rickshaw.

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.
