South Asia Fatehpur Sikri

Dive deep into the study of South Asia and its place in the world starting in fall 2016!

Here are three reasons to get a master’s degree in South Asia at the Jackson School:

  • Our faculty are world-class leaders in their fields: Choose from over 35 core faculty and over 20 affiliate faculty from around the globe who are leading innovative research, projects and courses on South Asia.
  • You can take classes in different UW departments to meet your own academic interests: Whether intensive language training — Hindi, Urdu, Bangla, Sanskrit or Persian — or studying history, global health, political science, environment or religions and more, you can access knowledge and insights that help build your career.
  • Engage in cutting-edge activities in the fastest growing city in the U.S.: We are committed to build collegiality and purpose among faculty, staff and students beyond the classroom. This includes local, regional and national seminars, conferences and cultural events that promote learning as well as networking with the UW and wider communities — and a diverse and active South Asian community — and the public and private sectors.
