Program Description:  The TnCIS India program will take place in the “Golden Triangle” region of north-central India: the cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. Students will begin the program with two days in India’s capital, Delhi. The next two days will be spent in Agra, one of India’s cultural and tourist centers. The remaining two weeks will be spent in Jaipur, the most important city in the desert state of Rajasthan, India. Each of these cities comprises numerous characteristics of one of the most impactful countries in the history of mankind. India is the world’s largest democracy and one of the world’s most populated countries. Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur are centers of India’s amazing diversity, illustrating striking examples of its political, social, intellectual, and religious advancements. Students will therefore be able to discover the mélange of India by experiencing its hospitality, visiting historically crucial sites, and becoming immersed in vast local activity.
