This degree is designed either as an end qualification in itself or to prepare the student for more advanced graduate work (MPhil/PhD).
Incoming students will be expected to have completed the equivalent of the first two years of undergraduate language study at SOAS in Japanese.
This is a specialist programme aimed at preparation for PhD research, for people who aim to enter employment that would benefit from a knowledge of Japanese culture, and for those with a general interest in Japan. The student will learn research methods and will be able to choose to focus on modern or pre-modern literature as their major area.
With a student population of around 4,000 from over 100 countries, our relatively small size ensures that we offer a friendly and welcoming environment while at the same time being able to take advantage of all University of London facilities.
