Sacred Space in India
Each summer from 2006 to 2011, Dr. Maher, Director of ECU's Religious Studies Program, has conducted a
study abroad program to India. He is currently planning a program for 2012. Each year, students have
visited sites sacred to adherents of many World Religions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and
Jainism. Participants earned 6 s.h. credits as Humanities General Ed electives or as general electives
for their major. There are no prerequisites, and instruction is in English.
For more information on future programs, contact Dr. Maher at email@example.com.

These are educational journeys for which students receive academic credit.
