Experience India’s history, rich traditions and complex culture as you learn about its educational system and contribute to our partner schools’ internationalization and efforts to increase opportunities for experiential learning, development of critical thinking skills, and engaged global citizenship. You will become acquainted with India before you arrive as the pre-departure orientation includes a brief introduction to Indian culture, history, and educational system. Even though SIL Ethnologue recognizes 415 “Living Languages of India,” English is widely spoken and understood, especially in its cosmopolitan cities. You may expand your own global linguistic repertoire by learning some words and phrases from your students and colleagues whose native language might be one of India’s 1,576 classified “mother tongues.

This program is operated through the University of Missouri College of Education.  The School of Education at the University of Kansas has partnered with Mizzou to offer this exciting opportunity to KU education students.  Given this arrangement, the program is offered as a student-initiated program which allows KU students to earn resident KU credit for study abroad programs sponsored by other accredited U.S. universities and colleges.
