Japan is an ideal location from which to study and experience both the historical roots and the latest developments of international society. It is a nation with close historical ties to many countries throughout the world and is a leading contributor to all aspects of globalization.
At the same time, there is widespread global interest in many aspects of Japanese culture:
- Zen Buddhism
- noh drama and the classical arts of ikebana and tea ceremony
Focusing on these diverse interrelationships, this program provides students with a transhistorical and multidimensional understanding of Japanese and other cultures through comparative studies underpinned by a sound knowledge of cultural analysis methodologies and a thorough grounding in fundamental research skills.
Graduates from the Master in Linguistics and Cultural Studies at Nagoya University are expected to take their place on the global stage, acting as cultural communicators to promote international exchange and understanding in a variety of governmental, commercial and NPO contexts. Suitably qualified students wishing to pursue their studies further may proceed to one of the doctoral programmes offered by the Graduate School of Languages and Cultures.
