The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MPhil in Modern South Asian Studies is a 21-month, taught master's course, offered jointly by the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies (OSGA) and the Faculty of Oriental Studies. You will study this important region, with its rich history and its complex present-day societies, via an intensive language route or a non-language route, culminating in a 30,000-word thesis. The MPhil in Modern South Asian Studies is an exciting degree bringing together Oxfordâ??s wealth of expertise on South Asia in a single programme. Students gain access to teaching and expert supervision across departments in the Social Sciences and Humanities Divisions. They receive rigorous training in one of three tailored modules in research methods, and have the option to build in Hindi, Urdu, Old Hindi, Persian or other language training. Students may choose to explore present-day Indiaâ??s social, economic and political achievements and challenges, and the connections between the countryâ??s democratic and developmental successes and failures, or to range more broadly across the states and societies of the subcontinent over the past five hundred years. Students may pursue any combination of interests, including history, literature, language, religion, economy and interstate relations. You will also choose between the language track or the non-language track. Language track students may take one of the following intensive courses both at beginner and advanced level: Hindi, Hindi and Urdu, Brajbhasha and Old Hindi, and if the timetable permits Sanskrit, Persian or Tibetan. Students who are interested in any of these three 'substitute' core languages are asked to flag this interest in their personal statement. Subject to timetabling, students with at least an intermediate or colloquial knowledge of any South Asian language also have the opportunity to take less intensive training in Hindi, Urdu, Old Hindi or Persian either continuing at an advanced level or beginning a new language. Bengali, Gujarati or Marathi may also be studied at an elementary level. Again, students interested in taking Persian either at advanced or beginner level are asked to flag this in their personal statement. Students on the course will experience a variety of teaching modes, including lectures, seminars, classes, student presentations, and small group teaching. The MPhil is jointly taught by staff within the Social Sciences and Humanities Divisions, who will also assess your application. The application process is administered by the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies. Language teaching will be provided in the Faculty of Oriental Studies. You will be required to gather relevant materials for your thesis during the course, usually by working in libraries and archives in the UK but potentially also via fieldwork. Assessment is through a combination of coursework, assessed essays, written examinations and the thesis.
