Students explore factors that create and sustain poverty; lived experience of poverty and being poor; global and national policies, programmes and institutions designed to tackle poverty and inequality; factors leading to countries growing richer, healthier and more secure. Students learn how theories at general level apply in specific regional contexts and how similar policies and development interventions have different outcomes based on particular political systems, cultures and societies.
Students are drawn to SOAS not only for its international reputation for academic excellence but also for the opportunity to study in a lively and international environment with like-minded individuals who feel passionately about contemporary world issues.
Undergraduates discover a fascinatingly diverse, lively and close-knit community on SOAS’s central London campus, and friendly fellow students who share the same intellectual interests in the international issues in which SOAS specialises.
SOAS is a place for those who want to expand their horizons and develop a deeper understanding of the world; for those who want to re-examine preconceptions and challenge the traditional status quo.
