NY6 Offers Hindi Instruction Starting this Fall 2016!

The New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium has entered into an agreement with Syracuse University to offer instruction in Hindi language to NY6 students through a synchronous video connection.  

Why Syracuse?  Syracuse University, in collaboration with Cornell University, is designated as a National Resource Center for South Asia, one of only eight such centers supported by the U.S. Department of Education.  

Why Hindi?  None of the NY6 schools had any existing instructional capacity in the Hindi language, but many have study abroad programs in India or academic programs in Asian Studies or other relevant areas that would benefit from students' ability to gain proficiency in this critical language.  

How are classes taught?  Introductory Hindi I will be offered daily M/T/W/Th from 6-6:50pm through a synchronous video connection with the instructor, to connect classrooms across the NY6 with the lecturer based at SU who will engage students over a live video feed.  The class follows SU's academic calendar; fall classes begin on Monday, August 29, 2016.  

How can I register?  Students from any NY6 school can submit a cross-registration form to register to take Introductory Hindi I this fall through SU.  SU will issue credit that can be transferred back to the student's home institution.  NY6 students will not be charged any additional tuition for enrollment in this class beyond that of their home institution.  **Registration forms must be completed and received by the student's home Registrar by 12noon on Friday, August 26, 2016 for consideration of enrollment.  The class is limited in size to 12 seats total. 

How do I get more information?  More information can be found in the attached flyer, or on the NY6 cross-registration page, available at the following URL:  Email Nell Bartkowiak if you have specific questions/concerns regarding this initiative.
