Kolkata (Calcutta) is India's third largest city, a bustling metropolis where the area population exceeds 1 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 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 culture, arts and the history of India. In addition, students enroll directly in one SXC course from a small selection 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 most meals provided.
