Descripción

This 3 year degree focuses on the languages and cultures of sub Saharan Africa. It includes the study of an African language and a wide choice of course units in the related cultural fields of Literature, Art, Performance and Religion Philosophy.

The languages normally available are Amharic, Hausa, Somali, Swahili, Yoruba and Zulu.

The range of expertise in SOAS, not only in the Africa Department, but also with regard to languages and literatures of other regions is unique in UK institutions. Along with proven excellence in other disciplines, such as religious studies, anthropology, art and archaeology, and history, this offers students an unparalleled range of options in choosing their second subject of study.

¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

As a student specialising in the continent of Africa, you will gain competency in language skills and intercultural awareness and understanding. Familiarity with the region will have been developed through a combination of the study of language, literature and culture (which can include literature, film, music, art and religion) of various parts of Africa. Graduates leave SOAS not only with linguistic and cultural expertise, but also with a portfolio of widely transferable skills which employers seek in many professional and management careers in both business and the public sector. These include written and oral communication skills, attention to detail, analytical and problem solving skills, and the ability to research, amass and order information from a variety of sources.

Requisitos: No preliminary knowledge of the subject or the language is required, although we do look for ability to learn a language (e.g. language at A level or equivalent).
