MPhil in Modern Japanese Studies
Students who successfully complete the MSc year, may progress to the second, MPhil year, during which they will do an advanced research methods course, a further language course, one more course about Japan (two in the case of those who do not take the language course), and a 30,000 word thesis to be handed in by 12 noon on Friday of the third week of Trinity Term.
The primary aim of the MPhil programme is to prepare students for subsequent doctoral work but it is also appropriate preparation for a wide range of careers.
The options available to MPhil students are the same as those listed on the MSc in Modern Japanese Studies.
