Specific courses as well as language requirements (if any) should be chosen in consultation with the director of India Studies.

Students in the Ph.D. minor in India Studies are also encouraged to take advantage of programs in India Studies and South Asian Studies at participating institutions in the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC). Excellent work in the social sciences is available through the University of Chicago and the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
