India is a fascinating place, with a culture almost as rich and as long as humanity is old. When you major in India Studies, you'll spend your academic life exploring various aspects of the subcontinent, focusing on the modern day, but also delving into its history, religion, society, and more.
And learn sought-after language skills
As an India Studies student, you'll have the opportunity to learn and gain fluency in an Indic language. Choose between Bengali, Hindi, Sanskrit, and Urdu. Because these are languages that are not commonly taught, you'll have a competitive advantage when it's time to look for a job or apply to a graduate program.
Top it all off by studying in India
IU offers a number of overseas study programs on the Indian subcontinent. Some even allow you to complete an internship at the same time.
No matter which program you choose, you'll be immersed in a rich culture and have the opportunity to practice your language skills 24 hours a day. It's a life-changing experience—and an important step forward for every India Studies student.
