Link to WesMaps Courses

Wesleyan has a remarkable collection of faculty, courses, and resources for all students interested in studying the cultures of South Asia (with primary focus on India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh). The University not only enjoys the distinction of having an Indian music studies program but also a diverse group of scholars devoted to the wider region and its diaspora in fields as diverse as anthropology, art history, cultural studies, dance, history, literature, and religion. Certificate faculty will help Wesleyan students better pursue the wide range of opportunities in South Asian studies - both scholarly and artistic - as the subcontinent gains increasing global prominence.

Students will be required to take seven courses designated as appropriate for the certificate. Up to three of these may be taken away from Wesleyan (e.g., on a Study Abroad Program).
