History of Art and Archaeology Undergraduate Degrees

From performance masquerade in West Africa to the visual cultures of China and Japan, the archaeology of Morocco and Ethiopia to the temples of South East Asia, and from the sophisticated book cultures of South Asia and the Middle East to questions of identity in museums and contemporary art exhibitions, History at SOAS covers a plurality of themes and theoretical approaches.

SOAS is renowned as an alternative voice to Eurocentric art history, challenging the categories often taken for granted in the study of other cultures.
