The India Story
"The India Story" Seminar is a three-week, intensive study of Indian culture in all its aspects: historic, artistic, religious, scientific, literary, musical, and political. All subjects are taught by the top people in their respective fields. Some examples are: Lecture on governance and the legal system by a retired Chief Justice of the Supreme Court; an interview with a Cabinet Minister; a lecture on Indus Valley archeology by the Curator of the Harappan collection of the National Museum, classical dance instruction and performances at the Kalakshetra Academy for the Arts, and other presentations of that caliber.
The group spends time in Delhi, in Mussourie (in the foothills of the Himalayas), Agra (Taj Mahal), and Chennai (Madras) at the Kalakshetra Academy for the Arts.
Manchester University has a unique agreement with The India Foundation which allows three semester hours of credit for participation in "The India Story" Seminar. Students from other institutions may receive transfer credits by registering for that summer course at Manchester University. Students will be assigned a term paper, written on a subject of choice from the many topics discussed in the seminar, will be reviewed by the appropriate experts in India, and by Manchester faculty for credit evaluation.
