Nothing can match the intensity and depth of engagement with a different culture than that achieved through knowledge of a local language. At SOAS, we are committed to delivering specialist language-based scholarship in combination with regional focus and disciplinary skills.
Our specialists are committed to studying the languages, literatures, film and cultures (classical and contemporary) of Africa, the Near and Middle East, South 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.
