South Asia Studies



Wesleyan has a remarkable collection of faculty, courses, and resources for all students interested in studying the cultures of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The university not only enjoys the distinction of having an Indian music studies program but also a dozen scholars devoted to the region and its diaspora in fields as diverse as anthropology, art history, dance, English, Hindi, history, economics, religion, and sociology. Certificate faculty will help Wesleyan students better pursue the wide range of opportunities in South Asia — both scholarly and artistic — as South Asia becomes increasingly prominent politically, economically, and academically.
