Kolkata (Calcutta) is India's third largest city, a bustling metropolis where the population exceeds 15 million. CSB/SJU partners with St. Xavier's College (SXC), a private educational institution that was founded by the Jesuit order and offers high quality programs in science, arts, commerce, business administration, and mass communication. The faculty for this program consists of a professor from CSB/SJU and professors from SXC. Students take courses in Bengali language, culture, arts and the history of India. In addition, students enroll directly in one SXC course from a variety of disciplines. Service learning also plays a major role in this program; it is required that all students spend time each week with a service organization in Kolkata. Students live in small groups in family homestays, with some meals provided.
