South Asia Degree Programmes

Prospective undergraduates have the option to study either a full- or half-degree (joint degree) in South Asian Studies, over either 3 or 4 years.  The four-year options involve taking one of our distinctive, intensive and focused ‘Language Pathways’, in which students concentrate on a particular South Asian language (either Bengali, Hindi, Nepali, Sanskrit or Urdu) and its associated regions and culture, while choosing from a wide range of other course offerings within the full degree, or alongside the prescribed courses in the other half of a joint degree.  See the ‘Language Pathways’ option on the left-hand navigation for full descriptions of these programmes, or examine the broader structures of the 3- and 4-year half- and full-degree South Asian Studies programmes for more information.
