Program Description:
USFSP in India: Mining, Environment and Sustainable Development

July 27 - August 11, 2017


Program Description


Mysore Palace

India is a country rich in history, cultural diversity, natural resources, and varied environments. While deeply traditional in some ways, such as religions and culture, India is also an emerging nation highly modernized in many parts of society, the economy, science and technology, and education. This tremendous contrast between the old world and new world makes India a fascinating case study. This program will give students an opportunity to experience India from two unique perspectives. First, students will experience Indian society and culture by touring ancient heritage buildings, monuments, museums, and historical sites in Bangalore, Mysore, and Ooty from July 27 - August 1.  Second, students will experience and study the effects of urbanization and resource mining on economic development and environmental conditions in India while taking courses at the Indian School of Mines in Dhanbad from August 2 - 11. 

All students will need to apply for a visa to India (not included in the program cost). Once the program has met minimum enrollment, USFSP Education Abroad will notify students how to proceed obtaining the visa.
