1 PhD Programs in Japanese in Japan 2024


A student who is interested in an in-depth study of language may choose to pursue a program in Japanese. In such a program, students will study the language of Japan, including its structure, pedagogy and syntax, along with studying the culture and history of the country.

Japan is an island nation in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
