As part of JGU’s continuing efforts to provide a transnational, global and holistic education to its students, several new summer schools have been introduced and existing summer programmes have continued in collaboration with some of JGU’s leading institutional partners. The 2018 summer schools include the Jindal-Harvard Summer School, Jindal – University of Granada Summer Programme, CIAS & University of Queensland Winter School Programme, and the Jindal – University of California-Berkeley Summer School Programme.
Jindal-Harvard Summer School: JGU announced the Jindal-Harvard Summer School programme on “Human Rights and Development” for all students of JGU across all schools, programmes as well as year of study.
It is a three-week intensive residential course in collaboration with the Program on Human Rights in Development (PHRD) at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard University, USA. This programme, offered for the third successive year to Jindal students across various schools, is a unique opportunity for JGU students as Harvard does not have any open access summer schools besides the ones run by the extension school and the language program. Therefore, this is a niche opportunity designed specifically to give JGU students an exposure to Harvard. It will take place from the 2 to the 20 July, 2018.
Jindal – University of Granada Summer Programme: JGU announces Jindal-University of Granada summer school programme from the 10th to 30th of June, 2018. The students will get 4 credits from this program. This program will enable students to learn in the natural environment with survival skills. Student’s horizon can be expanded by a short-term program and they will be empowered when back to campus.
Students will benefit from being able to learn in an intensive pace. The proposed programme includes 30 hours of classroom teaching primarily on the theme of the immersion. The programme will also help students to acquaint to Spanish culture and civilisation. The programme includes cultural and education visits to historical monuments including Alhambra, Sevilla, Malaga, bicycle ride, water sports, flamenco dance, albycin etc.
CIAS & University of Queensland Winter School Programme: Centre for India Australia Studies and Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) are partnering with TC Beirne School of Law at University of Queensland (UQ) to host a combined course on “Sports Law and Governance” in December 2018 at the University of Queensland.
The Course will be co-facilitated by academics from UQ and JGLS and will also incorporate several guest speakers and panelists, including international athletes, sports administrators, and sports lawyers. Students from UQ and JGLS will both participate in this programme. Classes will be delivered from 2nd to 10th December 2018. In addition to these classes and guest lectures, other activities, such as site visits in sporting federations and cultural programmes will be organised and included in the cost of the programme.
Jindal – University of California-Berkeley Summer School Programme: JGU and the University of California-Berkeley are organising summer school programme on “The Future of Global Media and International Journalism”. It will be held from 10 June 2018 – 22 June 2018. The students will get 2 credits for this programme.
Twenty students from JSJC will have the opportunity to spend two weeks learning about journalism and new media at the unmatched campus of the University of California at Berkeley, one of the top 10 universities in the world. Students will sample the future of journalism with visits to three key San Francisco institutions including Smart news, a leading aggregator which operates successfully with a handful of employees; Bloomberg News, which did not exist 25 years ago and now boasts the largest newsroom west of the Mississippi; and KQED, which has developed a vibrant news site far beyond its origins as a radio station. Visits, are also planned to iconic media firms in Silicon Valley, such as Facebook, Google and Twitter.
