The SOAS MA in Ancient Near Eastern Languages offers an intensive programme of text reading and language learning for those who already have a good knowledge of the Akkadian language usually at least two years' experience. The degree is intended to widen the student's experience in the vast legacy of written documentation in Akkadian and other languages from ancient Mesopotamia and Anatolia. The programme is tailor made to serve as an intermediate level between SOAS's three year BA in Ancient Near Eastern Studies (or an equivalent qualification) and postgraduate Assyriological research at the level of MPhil and PhD. It can, of course, be taken for its own sake.

Información importante

Requisitos: Minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) plus knowledge of Akkadian. NB: Due to its part time nature, this programme is currently not available to students requiring a Tier 4 visa
