International Studies India: Environment & Development in the Indian Himalayas (Uttarakhand, India) Fall 2013
The 2013 Fall Quarter UW India Himalaya – Environment & Development in India Study Abroad Program is a twelve week opportunity for UW students to study and live in the Kumaun Himalaya in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The academic focus of the program examines the political economy of development in India and considers the dynamics of formal and informal labor, environmental change and integrated rural development.
The Kumaun Himalayan region provides a unique perspective to examine accelerated economic and environmental change in relation to the regional, national and international contexts driving this change.Students draw on this academic framework to immerse themselves in an internship with our host organization , the Central Himalayan Rural Action Group (CHIRAG).
You are welcome to arrive at 2:30 if needed.
