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.
