Our study of the Indian Subcontinent moves beyond stereotypes and encourages a balanced, big-picture analysis of the region. We take pride in delivering sophisticated and insightful responses to critical issues in contemporary South Asia, including human rights issues, inter-religious tension, dowry and arranged marriages.
We offer studies in Sanskrit as well as non-language areas that explore traditional and modern cultures and religions (especially Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism). We also investigate the history, literature, politics and social structures of South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan) as well as Tibet and Central Asia.
Through the study of Sanskrit language, the most important classical language of the Indian subcontinent, you can explore the various intellectual, literary and artistic traditions that have shaped South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan), Central Asia, Southeast Asia and Tibet and played a profound role in forming Asia as a whole.
