Overview

Raili Roy's Gender and Development class meeting with staff members of the NGO Durbar in Kolkata.

Designed for busy Penn students who want to go to overseas but don't have time to spend a whole semester or summer, C.U. in India and Southeast Asia is a hybrid, domestic/overseas course series which provides students with the opportunity to have an applied learning and cultural experience abroad, while earning double-credit units.  Each yearlong, 2-CU course will require:

  • 28 classroom hours at Penn in the Fall term (1 hour twice a week)
  • A 10-12-day trip to India and/or Southeast Asia with the instructor during the winter break to visit key sites and conduct original research
  • 21 classroom hours at Penn in the Spring term (1.5 hours once a week)
  • A research paper, due at the end of the spring term.

Course enrollment is restricted to students admitted to the program.
