South Asian Studies Minor


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, language, literature, religion and film studies. Faculty contributing to the minor 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.
