Looking to pursue a Master’s Degree in South Asian Studies?

Three reasons why students should consider a Master’s Degree in South Asian Studies at the University of Washington, Seattle:

First, they have a critical mass of faculty in two key scholarly areas-Contemporary Politics, Culture, and Development and Languages, Literatures, and Religions. The breadth of interests and close engagement among their faculty allow students to learn in an environment that exemplifies the benefits of interdisciplinary scholarship. Courses of study, seminars, discussion groups, and speaker series are designed to promote interdisciplinary discussion and debate amongst faculty and students.

Second, the South Asia Center is committed to building a sense of community and purpose among faculty, staff and students. They have an active roster of speakers, conferences, informal discussions, and cultural events. Both inside and outside of the classroom, they strive to foster a sense of collegiality and shared purpose at UW.

Third, Seattle is a terrific place to live: it offers an enormous wealth of cultural activities and opportunities to engage with NGOs; a large, diverse, and active South Asian community; and one of America’s fastest growing metropolitan economies.
