Languages and Cultures Undergraduate Study

Welcome to the School of Language, Culture and Linguistics. We are committed to delivering specialist language-based scholarship in combination with regional focus and disciplinary skills. Nothing can match the intensity and depth of engagement with a different culture than that achieved through knowledge of a local language.

Our department is ranked 2nd in London according to the 2018 Guardian University League table.

Our specialists are committed to studying the languages, literatures, film and cultures (classical and contemporary) of Africa, the Near and Middle EastSouth Asia, and South East Asia. Our work covers a fascinating mix of cultures, languages, religions and traditions, many in dynamic, fast developing regions, which are assuming an increasingly important strategic role in global affairs.

A degree in Languages and Cultures at SOAS ensures you are distinctively positioned to analyse, understand and explain the world.
