API program sneak peak – School of Oriental and African Studies

As we prepare for the upcoming fall semester, we wanted to give you a sneak peak to some exciting new API study abroad programs. Today’s installment – the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, England.

The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is the only higher education institution in the UK specializing in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East and is one of the world’s leading institutions of its kind. SOAS is part of the federal University of London (like API’s program at University College London). The School has expanded rapidly in recent years to over 4,600 students from more than 130 countries but still retains its characteristic friendliness and warmth.

The specialties offered at SOAS have increasing relevance in today’s complex world. Economic, political, cultural and environmental changes have all led to a growing need to understand the world from a range of perspectives. SOAS has a long and distinguished tradition of widening the horizons of its students and helping them to gain the skills required in an international environment. At SOAS students are guided by scholars at the forefront of their fields who engage students in a challenging and dynamic learning experience. SOAS values its study abroad students very highly. They are fully integrated into the academic and social life of the school. Study abroad students are able to choose from over 400 courses and can build a unique program, exploring the range of specialist courses available at SOAS that may not be available in their home institution. Students can pursue studies in subjects from Arabic to Japanese, Aramaic to Urdu, and everything in between.

Another exciting feature of this program is the ability for academic year students to continue their studies of Arabic language and culture in one of API’s Middle Eastern program locations. More on this option in a future sneak peak!

Further details will be available in the coming weeks on the API website and 2012-2013 API catalog.
