Description

Strategic South Asia is a free online course produced by the Stimson Center South Asia Program’s Strategic Learning initiative. Strategic South Asia is the most comprehensive collection of perspectives regarding India and Pakistan’s strategic and nuclear trajectories available online. It includes video interviews with more than 80 leading practitioners and scholars from India, Pakistan, and the United States, including former senior diplomats and military officers. In addition to lectures, the course includes multiple-choice quizzes, recommended readings, and a pass/fail final exam. Strategic South Asia’s chapter learning objectives are also available for download.

The Strategic Learning initiative also offers a flexible edition of Strategic South Asia. This edition is meant for instructors, professors, and students seeking flexible, customizable content for online learning. It is identical in content to “Strategic South Asia: Complete Edition,” but does not require sequential progress through course content, and does not offer a certificate of completion.
