History Postgraduate Study

At SOAS, we offer an extraordinary window on the world. Our teaching and research explores the history of our regions through multiple lenses by drawing on a huge range of expertise in culture and religion, gender, economics, law and politics, technology and warfare.

As the only UK History department devoted to Africa, Asia and the Middle East, you can expect more from SOAS. From the Crusades to the contemporary Middle East, 14th century indigenous warfare to 20th century Islam in Southeast Asia, slavery to Muslim societies in West Africa, Modern China to modern Japan, we want you to experience all that this rich discipline has to offer.

Our research in action

Department provides a rich research environment, much of it centred on its five research seminar series on African, South Asian, Middle Eastern, East Asian, and South East Asian history. With around 20 or more new students a year joining the History PhD programme, it has a large and active community of research scholars.

Our latest project investigates the history of public violence in a wide geographical setting stretching from Tunisia to Iran, and seeks to develop an interdisciplinary and cross regional debate on Middle Easter cities and societies.
