Applications Being Accepted for 2016 Winter Break to Spain and 2017 Winter Term To India!

We have extended the application deadline to Monday, June 27 at 5:00 p.m. for the Spain mini-term over winter break and the India winter term programs.

India - NEW PROGRAM - 2017 Winter Term

Home to a dizzying tapestry of rich cultural traditions, is the second most populous country in the world, an emerging economic superpower and the world’s largest democracy. India is also at the frontlines of struggles for human rights and poverty alleviation. The term is based in the picturesque city of Jaipur, “the pink city.” Professor Jeffrey Witsoe, an anthropologist who has been doing research in India for more than fifteen years, will lead the term. Through cultural immersion and individualized internships with organizations focused on human rights and the struggle against poverty, students will have life transforming experiences.


Spain (Cordoba) - 2016 Winter Break Mini-Term

​This interdisciplinary mini term focuses on cultural diversity (especially religion) in the context of technology across time in Cordoba, Spain. We will combine pre-term seminars with intensive field work at sites in and around Cordoba as well as visits to other cities and sites in southern Spain.
