We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in South Asian Society & Culture equip postgraduates with the tools they need to analyse the influences, institutions and movements of South Asian society and culture.
Taking an interdisciplinary approach to South Asian Studies, programmes in this area typically straddle more than one field of study, so students can expect to become well-versed in the history, politics, religion and economics of the region, among other things.
Related subject areas include South Asian Languages & Literature, Anthropology and Postcolonial Studies.
By specialising in South Asian Society & Culture, you’ll be immersing yourself in one of the world’s most dynamic and vibrant regions, with a rich history and a turbulent present. The countries that make up South Asia include India, Pakistan and Nepal, so these Masters can have a vast scope. Some programmes include a study abroad component, giving you the chance to spend an extended period of time in one of those countries.
Typical modules might cover topics as eclectic as Bollywood, the sacred music of Hinduism or the economic development of South Asia.
Graduates may find work in sectors such as translation, journalism and policy, often with a South Asian focus.
