Symposium in India is a 10-day summer program for high school students to explore the experience of liberal arts seminars on humanities subjects. Led by students from Columbia University and other liberal arts universities in the U.S., the seminar-style classes will provide a cross-cultural learning experience, intertwining classics from Columbia's Core Curriculum with Indian classics. During the session students will have the opportunity to truly bond with each other and with their discussion leaders as mentors and forge friendships while exchanging their culture and learning about others.
