A Life-changing Experience Abroad

Choosing to study abroad in India was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Given the chance to spend three and a half months learning about and immersing yourself in a different culture, it's important to find a place that will always surprise and excite you. When else will you have the opportunity to explore a country as diverse as India for an entire semester?

SIT Study Abroad programs offer unique experiential-based learning. Rather than sitting in a classroom every day, you're able to visit the places you're studying and come to understand the historical and cultural context of the material. Adjusting to life in India can be exhausting and frustrating at times, but I can't imagine a more fulfilling feeling than realizing you're actually comfortable navigating the chaos of New Delhi - it prepares you for pretty much any future life experience! This program allows students to explore the rich and diverse history, art, architecture, religion, language, and identity of Indian culture and you will find yourself amazed and enriched every single day.
