A collaboration with the Keystone Study Away Consortium (KSAC) in August 2011 saw the beginning of the fall semester as part of the study abroad student program that FERAL coordinates every year. This is a cultural and social semester focussing on Sustainable Development in India with the following courses:
a) Sustainable Resource Management
b) Culture, Class and Gender
c) Heart of India
d) Art as Sustainable Development
e) Optional: Islands and Reefs
The overall organization of the program allows students to see for themselves some of the places and organizations that shape contemporary India’s views not only in science but also on social issues. They are also provided a historical perspective and hear about current debates which will help them understand these from the larger Asian or global perspective.
