Oriental Institute, University of Oxford

Among subjects in the humanities, Oriental Studies is unique in introducing students to civilisations that are radically different from the Western ones that form the basis of the curriculum in most British schools and colleges. The courses present both the major traditions of the regions studied and, in most cases, their modern developments. All courses include language, literature, history and culture, and there are a wide range of options in such fields as art and archaeology, history, literature, philosophy, religion and modern social studies. The following are the principal areas of study: Islamic World, Hebrew and Jewish Studies, Eastern Christianity, Egyptology and the Ancient Near East, South and Inner Asia, and East Asian Studies. In addition a major benefaction from the Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai has fully endowed a new Chair of Buddhist Studies at Oxford. The Faculty is not open to the public.
