Program Description:

SIT India: Public Health, Gender & Sexuality


Understand the pioneering links between public health, gender, and community action in India and Thailand.

WHY STUDY PUBLIC HEALTH, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY IN INDIA?
India has a long and complex history of interventions in reproductive health. Globalization, neoliberalism, and rapid societal changes are changing how India’s public health institutions approach the reproductive health of sexual minorities.

This program offers an opportunity to understand how women and sexual minorities are alternately mainstreamed and marginalized in reproductive and sexual health settings. You will have access to SIT’s longstanding network of institutions and public health officials engaged in national and international decision-making, policy development, and healthcare delivery. During visits with health strategists, experts, and activists, you’ll learn how reproductive epidemiology informs disease management among women and sexual minorities in rural and urban contexts. In rural communities, you will conduct fieldwork and engage with community-based organizations and advocacy groups for a deeper dive into grassroots approaches to healthcare access. Through classroom teaching and immersive field study, you will develop insights into innovations for inclusive and accessible reproductive and sexual health care in one of the most populated democracies in the world.

PACE RESOURCES:
  • Pace Study Abroad FAQs: Review these Pace Study Abroad FAQs.
  • Academic FAQs: If you have more questions about academics related to study abroad, review these Pace FAQs.
  • Financial FAQs: If you have more questions about the cost of study abroad, financial aid, and scholarships, review these Pace FAQs.
    • Students are responsible for:
      • Pace tuition and fees, including a $100 Study Abroad Fee, are billed to the student's Pace account. 
      • Room charges are the responsibility of the student and are paid directly to the host institution abroad.
      • Out-of-pocket expenses (airfare, meals, local transportation, etc.) are the responsibility of the student.
      • All Federal and NY State financial aid apply during the semester abroad. Up to $12,500 of institutional financial aid (Pace scholarships/grants) applies to the semester abroad. The portability of Pace institutional aid is limited to two semesters. Pace tuition remission does not apply.

ENSURE YOU ENROLL IN ENOUGH CREDITS DURING YOUR SEMESTER ABROAD!!
A minimum of 12 U.S. credits is required during a semester abroad to maintain full-time status (and receive financial aid), defined as being enrolled in 12-18 U.S. credits per semester. However, we STRONGLY recommend that you take the equivalent of 15 U.S. credits abroad because:  
  • Any unforeseen changes to your schedule abroad could reduce your course load below 12 U.S. credits (e.g., canceled classes or a change in your class choices)
  • Pace students must have full-time status to receive financial aid. If you are eligible for financial aid but enroll in fewer than 12 U.S. credits, you will lose your financial aid. 
  • Taking 15 U.S. credits abroad acts as a cushion so you’re not at risk of losing financial aid in case of any unforeseen changes.

PRE-APPROVED COURSES
Click the above link to see the courses that have been approved for Pace students who previously studied abroad on this SIT India Public Health program
 
  • Pace recommends that you try to select courses from this Pre-approved Courses list because these SIT India program courses have already been reviewed and approved by Pace Department Chairs. If you select courses from this list, you’ll only need to receive approval from your Pace Academic Advisor for those courses - which will make the process of receiving Pace academic credit for your semester abroad much easier. However, if the pre-approved courses listed don’t fit with your interests/academic plans and you chose a course that’s NOT on the pre-approved list, you’ll need to seek approval from a Pace Department Chair. 
  • Be sure to check with SIT's current course catalog because some courses listed on the link above may no longer be offered on this SIT India program or are only available during one of the terms (Fall or Spring). 
  • Note: If there are no courses (or only a few courses) listed, it means that you are one of the first students from Pace to study abroad on this SIT India program
