About

The East Asian Studies course from The University of Manchester enables you to carry out original research into an area of interest concerning the East Asian region, broadly defined (including south-east Asia, especially when related to areas and cultures which use Chinese writing characters).

Overview

You will do this while transcending specific cultural boundaries or seeking to utilise the academic specialism and guidance of scholars in East Asian Studies to engage with academic topics within the region.

We have academics with a range of interests within Chinese Studies and Japanese Studies, as well as language teaching teams in Chinese and Japanese.

Our staff can offer postgraduate supervision in a variety of areas related to religion, education, popular culture, art, history, gender studies, identity formation, literature, social dynamics, social and business networks, as well as medical history and policy, either in terms of specific East Asian cultures or relating to topics defined as crossing national and cultural boundaries within the wider East Asian context.

Teaching and learning

The MPhil East Asian Studies course from The University of Manchester is suitable for students who wish to undertake original research over a shorter period than the PhD. It involves one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.

A satisfactory MPhil topic is one that a suitably qualified and properly supervised student can bring to completion within the permitted timeframe.

Please note that all MPhil students are required to undertake research training as part of their MPhil programme.

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 of Arts, Languages and Cultures, but if your research requires it, we 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.
