Our global reputation for teaching and research makes us a first choice destination for undergraduates interested in Literatures, Languages and Cultures.
The School offers both single and joint honours degree programmes that take four years to complete. During this time you will have an option to study an outside subject, which will add an extra depth to your studies.
Undergraduates interested in literature will have the chance to study at the oldest English Literature department in the world; those wanting to learn a foreign language will have experienced language instructors at hand; and those fascinated by culture have the chance to learn about other traditions and customs.
Undergraduate degrees can be selected from five main subject areas:
Asian Studies at the University of Edinburgh includes Chinese, Japanese and Sanskrit.
