At the CET Delhi: International Student Program, the US university-style academic environment comes to you. Your instructors are experienced, your peers are other international students also earning their degrees at US universities, and your classes are taught in English. Take on engaging in-person coursework, seminars, and assignments while fulfilling credits at your home institution.
Curriculum & SYLLABI
You enroll in a combination of courses to meet a total of 12 to 15 recommended credits.
These courses are conducted in English using US-style teaching methods. Each of the following courses is worth 3 credits and 45 contact hours, unless otherwise noted.
- VR/ANTH 300 Gender, Caste, Community: Urban Geography in Context
- VR/DIRR 399 Directed Field Study
- DE/ECON 330 Development Economics in the World’s Largest Democracy
- DE/GLBS 340 India’s Emerging Markets: Technology, Innovation, Entrepreneurship
- VR/RELS 310 Ritual, Pilgrimage, and Pluralism: The Practice of Religion in India
Select universities have options for enrolling in online coursework that complements the in-person coursework offered at CET. Online courses are administered by US universities, and are not included in the CET Delhi program transcript. Please check with your university for more information.
Take classes that mirror the teaching styles of American classrooms. You and your classmates (other international students unable to take in-person classes in the US) participate in seminar-style classes with active discussions and assignments that encourage analysis and critical thinking. And because these courses fulfill credits at your home school, you can take in-person classes while in India for the semester and stay on track to graduate on time.
HOUSING & ACTIVITIES
If you live outside of New Delhi and/or cannot commute to classes every day, we arrange housing for you in the city:
Settling in for Fall
Your semester starts off with a three-day orientation to help you get settled for the semester. Get familiar with the program center (where your classes are held), how your courses work, and extra-curricular activities that you can expect throughout the semester. Orientation will also cover health and safety guidelines and procedures.
Get to Know Your Peers
You might not be at your home university, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the social aspects of on-campus life. Your cohort includes other Indian international students from both your US school and other colleges across the country. Take classes together this fall, and when US schools are safely open for in-person learning, return to campus with both academic credits and new friends.
Who is CET?
CET Academic Programs is a study abroad organization that has been developing and operating innovative educational programs abroad since 1982. Originally “China Educational Tours,” CET began operations in Beijing, later expanding to other locations around the world. Today, CET offers a varied portfolio of semester, summer, and customized programs around the world for college, high school, pre-college, and gap year students.
Your CET courses are taught by passionate faculty recruited to instruct specific courses. In the recruitment and hiring process, the program director (in consultation with the director of academic affairs) assesses each faculty member’s prior teaching experience, research expertise, and history of teaching US undergraduates. Many instructors come from local universities and/or are locally recognized as experts in their field.
