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 maherd@ecu.edu.
