The MA in Asian Studies (India and South Asia Studies) has two tracks: Track A1: “language specialisation” Track A2: international specialisation.

The programme equips students to work with, on and in this dynamic region. The programme offers a deep and interdisciplinary understanding of the rapidly transforming society and culture in India and South Asia and its entangled history with Asia and the West. It gives students an opportunity to learn Hindi, which is the most common language in South Asia, on an advanced level (language track) and to acquire skills to deal with the Indian subcontinent in an increasingly globalised and interconnected world (international/non-language track).
