SASLI offers the first and second year study of modern South Asian languages and Sanskrit, as well as the third year study of Hindi, Sanskrit, and Urdu. It prepares students for subsequent training domestically and abroad. SASLI is currently held on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Students may only register for one language per summer. This 8-week program offers the equivalent of two full semesters of academic study and 160 contact hours. SASLI participants MUST complete the two consecutive 4-week sessions for a total of 8 weeks.
Upon completion of the program, students will receive 8 credits and two letter grades (A-F). Students can request a transcript from the Registrar’s Office of the University of Wisconsin-Madison for coursework at SASLI.
Classroom hours of instruction are Monday through Friday, 4 hours each day, from 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM (with a break from 10:30-11:00 AM). Due to the intensive nature of the summer session, absences for reasons other than illness are allowed only in special circumstances.
PLEASE NOTE: SASLI plans on running in-person for Summer 2022. More information on SASLI 2022 to come shortly! Interested in how Summer 2021 looked? Keep reading:
