If you’re a native speaker or you have substantial training in Chinese, Japanese or Thai, this course will prepare you for a career in research with an area specialism.
Half of the course will give you a solid foundation in East Asian studies and research methodologies, equipping you with a range of subject knowledge, consolidating your language skills and preparing you to conduct independent, theory-driven research. In the other half, you’ll apply all of this to your own research project comprising 50% of the MRes, supervised by a member/members of the Faculty.
You’ll study in a stimulating research environment with plenty of opportunities to attend research events and conferences, not just within East Asian Studies but also at School and University level.
Our tutors are conducting research in diverse fields across East Asian Studies, and you’ll benefit from teaching that’s informed by their own work. It’s a great opportunity to prepare for a career in academic or professional research.
By choosing to study East Asian Studies at Leeds you will be joining a leading centre for research in the region, with over 50 years of history.
