Join us for an info session about the summer 2024 W&M faculty-led study abroad program to Goa and Bengaluru. If you can't join us in person, you can join via Zoom.

Students on the William & Mary Bengaluru and Goa summer program spend five weeks exploring India. Students begin the program in Bengaluru, staying and studying at the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), where they are hosted. At NLSIU students attend panel discussions and excursions to local NGOs and businesses, depending upon the course offerings that year. Students also get an opportunity to work with Master's in Public Policy students at NLSIU. From Bengaluru, the program will head to Goa, where students will have course-related excursions to points of interest around Goa will enhance the student’s understanding of the economic and cultural background of the region. Possible additional excursions might include an overnight visit to an organic spice plantation or a trip to Hampi, a UNESCO Wold Heritage Site.

This program will be led by Iyabo Osiapem, Teaching Professor of Africana Studies and Linguistics.
