South and Southeast Asian Studies

Bowdoin offers courses in the anthropology, art, history, and religions of South Asia.

The South Asian Studies program at Bowdoin is affiliated with excellent off-campus study programs in India and Sri Lanka. The two most notable study abroad programs at Bowdoin for South Asian Studies are:

  1. ISLE: Intercollegiate Sri Lanka Education

We encourage all serious students to spend a semester or a year studying in South Asia.
