The interdisciplinary minor consists of a minimum of six courses (totaling at least 18 credits) from the following list of approved courses. One of these courses must be a South Asian History survey course or equivalent. Not more than two of the six courses can come from any one discipline. All courses must secure a minimum grade of C for the student to graduate with a South Asian Studies Minor. Courses taken abroad in India under the Rutgers University Study Abroad Program may be included in the six, subject to the approval of a faculty advisor.
Any 200 or 300 level course in South Asian History offered through the history department will fulfill the history survey requirement. Consult the program for a list of such courses.
Students who have taken 01:925:XXX courses may use those toward the minor requirements. If cross-listed with a course from another department, the course will count as being from that other department.
Please note that the curriculum numbers for three South Asian languages -- Hindi, Bengali, and Sanskrit -- have changed. Whatever number students take these language courses under, no more than two of them can count toward the minor because of the requirement, listed above, that no more than two of the six courses can come from any one discipline.
Also view the South Asian Studies Program's list of faculty, many of whom offer courses that count toward the undergraduate minor.
