The wealth of its cultures, the open friendliness of the Indian people, and the wide range of beautiful landscapes make India one of the most rewarding countries to explore.  


In Hyderabad, the gateway between north and south India, CUNY students will collaborate with media production students at Ramoji Film City/Mahendra Ecole Centrale – described in the Guiness Book of World Records as the “largest studio complex in the world”.    Together, as part of multi-cultural crews students will collaborate on short documentaries. 


Combining a rigorous and multi-faceted curriculum with genuine intercultural experiences,  India: Documentary Production and Cultural Studies enables students  to earn credit towards their major/minor while exploring the largest democracy on earth.
