The Indic Studies Minor is designed for students who are interested in learning languages, civilization, science, art, culture, traditions, and philosophy-as originated and practiced in the Indian Sub-Continent-and many other contemporary subjects from Gandhi to Indian democracy. This program encompasses and seeks to integrate knowledge from a wide range of subject areas and uses a multi-disciplinary approach. Students will learn in a multi-faceted way, in classroom, seminar, and experiential settings.
The goals of the Indic Studies Minor are:
- to disseminate understanding of issues relating to Indian arts, philosophy, culture, societal values, customs and tradition.
- to promote international harmony through the mix of ancient and modern values; promote awareness among Americans and world at large on contemporary India and its demographic diversity in the 21st century.
