India: Sustainable Development and Social Change

India: Sustainable Development and Social Change

Examine India’s socioeconomic development trends and how rethinking development is gaining urgency for shaping sustainable social change.

This program examines the diverse factors, internal and global, shaping India's development strategies and patterns. Students gain foundational knowledge of India’s past, present, and future development paradigms, economic growth, and social change. The program is based in Jaipur, a bustling hub of NGOs engaged in development projects, social justice initiatives, and political activism.

Major topics of study include:

  • India’s transition: post-1990s
  • India’s polity and governance mechanisms   
  • Indian society and its marginalized communities
  • Rural and urban development: crisis, challenges, and response
  • Creating a roadmap for sustainability in India and radical ecological democracy (RED) 
 
During the SIT program, we had the opportunity to meet and discuss issues of international development with officials from the Indian federal government, to visit a multitude of NGOs across the subcontinent working in fields ranging from rural healthcare to sustainable energy to gender inequality, and to undertake independent study. The experiences I had conversing with NGO leaders, rural hospital employees, civilians, and SIT staff have helped me establish a stronger understanding of the collaborative efforts involved in sustainable development and have helped shape my ambitions and career goals. I will never forget the staff's constant support and encouragement.

lectureIndia is the world's largest democracy with a rapidly growing economy, vibrant IT industry and service sector, and burgeoning middle class, and it is poised to become an influential world power. Despite its impressive economic growth, social hierarchy, inequity, and poverty remain enormous challenges for this country of more than one billion people.

Live and study in Jaipur and witness the daily dichotomy of traditional and modern characterizing much of contemporary India.

In Jaipur, students begin thematic coursework, language study, and the Field Methods and Ethics course while enjoying access to academics, professional associations, and grassroots organizers working in areas such as community development, natural resource management, and poverty alleviation through state-led social security provisions and livelihood development.

Jaipur presents itself as a wealthy and regal city containing clean, stately, tree-lined streets; traditional and contemporary architecture; heritage palaces and forts; five-star hotels; and a thriving tourism industry. However, the largely rural and agricultural state of Rajasthan is among the underdeveloped regions in India, and Jaipur, the state's capital city, reflects this reality. Rural and urban youth throughout the region struggle with problems ranging from life-threatening droughts to gaining admission to prestigious universities. Organizations supported by concerned urban citizens are seeking innovative ways to address issues of poverty, social justice, and sustainable development in Rajasthan's rural areas as well as among the urban poor.

Gain direct exposure to some of the most inspired and important Indian experts working in the development and social change arenas.

The program’s lecturers include policymakers and planners, academicians, development practitioners, NGO workers, researchers, Gandhi scholars, journalists, social workers, feminists, and development and social change activists.

Study Hindi language.

practicing HindiStudents receive daily language instruction in Hindi in both large- and small-group formats. Students are encouraged to continue working on their language skills outside the classroom, especially with their homestay families, during excursions, and while completing the NGO workshop. Students with advanced Hindi skills may opt for tutoring.

Acquire research and field study skills.

Through the program's course on the ethics and methods of field research, students learn appropriate methodologies that prepare them to undertake primary research on critical issues and topics relating to social and political change and development. Students acquire research skills and approaches that are used for the Independent Study Project such as:

  • Cross-cultural adaptation and skill building
  • Project selection and refinement
  • Appropriate fieldwork methodologies
  • Field study ethics and the World Learning/SIT Human Subjects Review Policy
  • Developing skills in observation and interviewing
  • Gathering, organizing, and communicating data
  • Maintaining a work journal
  • Networking and resource mobilization

Assigned papers provide an opportunity for students to test the tools introduced during the course while providing occasions for discussions on ethics and intercultural readings. Throughout the Field Methods and Ethics course, students work to develop their research topics for the Independent Study Project, and advance their initial ideas, assumptions, and drafts in close consultation with the program’s academic director.

Independent Study Project

Students consider the most effective transformative tools for India in the 21st century, and examine the notion of "Indian culture" from both anthropological and contemporary Indian political perspectives.

The Field Methods and Ethics course addresses culturally appropriate, ethical field methodology, in preparation for the Independent Study Project (ISP). Study of Hindi opens windows into the culture and the theme of the program.

homestayStudents in the India: Sustainable Development and Social Change program live with a homestay family in Jaipur for approximately six weeks. Homestay is an enthralling experience and an integrated part of the program. Homestay families have a longstanding relationship with SIT and are always eager to welcome new members in their family with joy and curiosity, semester after semester. Most of the families are from the upper middle class, with varied religious backgrounds and worldviews. Some members of the family are homemakers, while others are engaged in professions such as teachers/professors, engineers, business owners, government officials, doctors, artists, etc.

Indian family structure is in transition from multi-generational to nuclear. In addition, the number of families with both parents working outside the home is growing. Students live in families of varied sizes composed of parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, small children, and uncles and aunts. Few families have pet dogs and cats. The program has a one student-one family norm. Each student typically has a separate room with an attached bathroom that is occasionally shared by visiting relatives.

Students are matched with families based on their background, health issues, and shared interests like music, arts, etc. The homestays are located in clusters within the periphery of 1–10 kilometers from the program centre. Two to four students are placed in each cluster, accessible to each other with short walks, allowing students to pool auto rickshaws and other modes of local transport for the daily commute to the learning center. Students usually use the same auto rickshaw for traveling around Jaipur in their free time, maximizing safety and convenience. The program has the practice of collecting vital information of the regularly and occasionally used auto rickshaw drivers like their name, phone number, and vehicle registration number.

The homestay experience provides students with the opportunity to share and learn customs, food, languages, and social and religious lives by taking part in daily activities at home and with members of the extended family. The experience itself provides a sense of social change and continuity in India’s family structure and traditions. During the Indian wedding seasons, students will also get to attend “Bollywood-style” north Indian weddings with dance, music, jewelry, and sarees. Past students have considered the homestay experience to be one of the most meaningful components of the program.

Other accommodation during the program includes hostels, hotels, guesthouses, and farm houses.
