Regarding PhD Program
JACS does not offer a standalone PhD program. However, faculty members associated with JACS can still act as supervisors for PhD students enrolled in Japanese Cultural Studies (日本文化学) or Screen Studies (映像学). If you're interested in pursuing a PhD under the guidance of a JACS professor, please reach out to them directly to discuss potential supervision opportunities.
Note that Nagoya University offers research PhD programs rather than taught PhDs.
A research PhD is a degree program where the student focuses on conducting original research in their field of study and producing a thesis that summarizes their findings. A taught PhD, on the other hand, involves taking courses and completing coursework, as well as conducting research.
