Program description

Persian is the main language of more than 120 million people and is among the world's most widely spoken languages. Apart from opening the door to a fascinating and varied region, knowledge of Persian and the Middle East provides access to the rich intellectual heritage of Islam. To study Persian is to enter into a rich and diverse culture. The School of Literatures, Languages & Cultures at the University of Edinburgh is recognised in the UK and internationally as a leading institution for research and study of Arabic, Persian, Islam, the Middle East, and other related subjects. Students of politics explore the origins and present-day contexts of conflicts over power and resources; the morality of political action, the limits of freedom and justice, and the processes of governance at various levels. Politics is part of a vibrant research-led community which is truly international. We have students from all over the world and have a vibrant student Politics Society. There is always plenty going on, and always someone for you to talk to about your academic studies, leisure interests or life in Edinburgh.
