For comprehensive information about how you can specialise in Japanese Studies within the Master of Asian Studies, or for information about the Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate in Asian Studies, please visit the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences website.
The department of Japanese Studies contributes to the offering of three interdisciplinary coursework postgraduate degrees in Asian Studies:
- Master of Asian Studies (MAsianStud)
- Graduate Diploma in Asian Studies (GradDipAsianStud)
- Graduate Certificate in Asian Studies (GradCertAsianStud).
The coursework degrees are intended for graduates of humanities or social science programs who wish to broaden and deepen their understanding of the Asian region. Master of Asian Studies students who hope to qualify for admission to research postgraduate candidature should include the dissertation option in their program.
The Master of Arts (Research) also allows students to mix research and coursework. This option is suitable for graduates who would like more training before applying for admission to an advanced research degree (MPhil or, if appropriately qualified, PhD); and graduates who would like a taste of research but do not wish to commit themselves to an MPhil or PhD.
