India Studies Program
Explore India: the land of “Unity in Diversity.” Students study at Bishop Appasamy University and are immersed in Indian culture by interacting with local citizens in Coimbatore, by program-sponsored travel throughout India, and by participating in service projects and internships. The program offers special options for social work students who can take a course in their discipline as well as participate in social work internships.
