Distinguished research and graduate study of contemporary India

From Governor Generals to Freedom Fighters to Rhodes Scholars and everything in between Oxford University has a rich history of engaging with South Asia, with South Asianists and South Asians.

In 2008 Oxford created the multi-disciplinary MSc in Contemporary India. It was the first such degree in the world and now offers India-focused courses in Anthropology, Political Economy, Human Development, International Relations, Anthropology, Politics and Research Methods.  

South Asian Studies more broadly hosts a number of distinguished research projects, organises seminars, and provides a base for visiting scholars.
