SASLI offers the first and second year study of modern South Asian languages and Sanskrit, as well as the third year study of Hindi 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.
Nepali will not be offered at SASLI 2018. Interested students should investigate the Cornell Summer Intensive Nepali Program.
Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment. Please be sure to apply to SASLI as early as possible to help ensure that your class will be offered. Those that apply to a course that is cancelled can receive a refund for the application fee.
