The MPhil in Japanese Studies is a two-year programme offered jointly by the Faculty of Oriental Studies and the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies that combines intensive language courses, three courses about Japan, research methods courses and a 30,000-word dissertation. Native speakers of Japanese take two additional courses about Japan. It acts either as a foundation for those intending to seek employment working in Japan or with Japan, or as a preparation for further research on Japan on a doctoral programme at Oxford or elsewhere. This course is not intended to teach Japanese for beginners but rather aims to develop student’s existing language skill to the level at which he/she can use it to conduct research about Japan. The department's courses aim to take students from a minimum of JLPT Level 3 up to and beyond Level 1.
