A group of Belmont students and faculty studied abroad in India for the first time in university history over the holiday break. The class, “Visual Sociology: Exploring India and the Self,” challenged students to use photography to understand themselves and the vibrant country of India.
The group’s itinerary was scheduled to include travel to several cities in northern India and possible visits to sites of historical significance such as the Taj Mahal and the Ganges river as well as other cultural heritage sites. Sociology Chair Dr. Andi Stepnick and her class are scheduled to return to the United States today. Click here to read blog entries from this Study Abroad trip.
