About

The International Master's Program (IMAP) in Japanese Humanities at the Kyushu University was founded in 2011 and the International Doctorate (IDOC) in  Japanese Humanities added in 2017. 

Overview

Graduate seminars at the International Master's Program (IMAP) in Japanese Humanities at the Kyushu University emphasize premodern Japan and its relationship to East Asia; these are supplemented by courses offered by affiliated and guest faculty in topics ranging from Japanese film to archaeology. There are also courses in field-specific methodologies, research methods, and premodern languages (bungo and kanbun).  All students enjoy full access to the educational strengths and facilities of a world-class Japanese university and benefit from the rich array of academic resources it offers.

Skills 

IMAP has attracted students from all over the world, including the UK, Belgium, Spain, China, Jamaica, Bahrain, Indonesia, Brazil, Argentina, Slovakia, Latvia, Mexico, the USA, and from within Japan. As Japanese students study alongside international students, non-native English speakers hone their skills in academic English writing and reading, while others enhance their Japanese language skills. MA recipients might continue their study at the PhD level in Japan and overseas, or secure employment in journalism, public service, teaching and research positions, tourism, and information technology. PhD candidates will typically seek academic or research positions.

Programme Structure

Courses included:
  • Japan: A History to 1600
