Temple University Education Abroad 200 Tuttleman Learning Center, 1809 N. 13th Street Philadelphia, PA 19122 United States
late May to late June
The Temple University in India summer program, based in the medieval town of Dhrangadhra in Gujarat, is intended to investigate Indian civilization through an anthropological study of its religious and artistic traditions, both ancient and contemporary. Upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students may apply.
The mode of study is highly experiential and combines workshops, field trips and short apprenticeships. Each student conducts an independent field research project, focusing on an area of particular interest. Study is supervised by Dr. Jayasinhji Jhala, associate professor of anthropology at Temple University, whose lectures supplement the curriculum. Local academics; performers of art, music, theater, painting and sculpture; and religious leaders also address and instruct the students.
As this is an experiential learning opportunity, students with technical skills such as video making and photography; studio skills such as painting, sculpture and jewelry making; or performance skills in dance, music, theater or yoga, are encouraged to apply.
See program website for details.
The Temple University Education Abroad office offers semester, academic year and summer study abroad programs around the world. In addition to providing study abroad opportunities for Temple students, we welcome the participation of students from other U.S. colleges and universities.
