This is an interdisciplinary foreign study program in Hyderabad, a dynamic and multicultural city in southeastern India with a population of 6.8 million. Hyderabad is particularly known as a city in which Hindu and Muslim cultures have commingled for over four hundred years. Hyderabad is home to a number of institutions of higher learning, including Osmania University, the Indian School of Business, and the prestigious University of Hyderabad. In addition, Hyderabad is the center of the Telegu film industry and has a well-developed information technology sector. The population of Hyderabad is cosmopolitan and multilingual (speaking Telugu, Hindi, Urdu, and English), but students will have little difficulty navigating the city using English alone.
The FSP will be located at the University of Hyderabad, which is among the top ten academic institutions in India. The university has 275 faculty and 2,700 students. The campus is residential, and 90% of the students, who come from all over India, live on the campus itself. Dartmouth students will be able to take advantage of the vibrant social and intellectual life on campus and will have access to sports and other facilities and to non-credit courses in classical Indian dance or music. Dartmouth students will take two courses designed especially for them and will enroll in a third class chosen from a list of offerings at the University of Hyderabad. Students will thus be enrolled in one class with University of Hyderabad students.
