About

Japanese Studies was established at The University of Manchester in 2007 and quickly grew a large undergraduate programme with a small but expanding graduate cluster attached.

Overview

Japanese Studies in The University of Manchester focuses on modern and contemporary Japan and offers supervision of postgraduate research projects connected to the broader issues of gender, education, religion, society and history. 

In particular we offer specialist supervision on mass culture, subcultural formations and cultural production, contemporary and modern religious organizations and movements, modern medical and educational and cultural history, and gender and women in culture, medicine, reproduction, and society.

Anthropological, sociological, textual and gender and cultural studies approaches are supported. There is a focus on cross-disciplinary research and co-supervision linking research in Japanese Studies with other disciplines.

Career opportunities

Many of PhD graduates in Modern Languages and Translation and Interpreting Studies have gone on to academic positions at leading universities in the UK, Europe, USA, East Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Our graduates have been also successful with receiving prestigious postdoctoral fellowships, including the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship and the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Programme Structure

Coursework and assessment

  • Your research will normally be supervised by two members of staff at the University. Your supervisors will most likely be members of the School, but if your research requires it, the School or Subject area may arrange for supervision by someone outside the School. 
  • Supervisory arrangements at Manchester are governed by a Code of Practice which is available on the University's website.
  • Regular meetings will be held with the supervisors, and details of each of the meetings will be recorded. Research Panels (consisting of at least three academic staff, including the supervisors) are held once per semester to monitor progress.
