Course content

The Japanese Studies MLitt comprises taught and research-based elements and is well suited as preparation for PhD research. We place a high emphasis on excellent supervision, researcher training and development.

The MLitt allows you to focus on an area of Japanese studies of particular interest, and which you may wish to carry further into postgraduate research as a PhD student. You will normally work on a research project which comprises two-four research assignments and a longer dissertation. Your supervisor will be an expert in your chosen field, and will receive support if necessary from an experienced research supervisor.
