Program Description:

Program OverviewSIT Jaipur

The program is based in Rajasthan's capital city of Jaipur, a bustling hub of nongovernmental organizations engaged in development projects, social justice initiatives, and political activism. To acquire diverse perspectives, students engage with a wide array of academic, professional, and community experts. The program includes visits to the headquarters of nongovernmental organizations and prominent academic and research institutes throughout the city and elsewhere in Rajasthan.

Program Focus

This interdisciplinary program is designed to provide students with an understanding of social, political, and economic change within the Indian context by exploring both the historical and contemporary dynamics of India’s colonial past and present frenetic growth. Students consider the most effective transformative tools for India in the 21st century, and examine the notion of "Indian culture" from both anthropological and contemporary Indian political perspectives.
