We do not offer a degree program for graduate students. However, there are teaching assistantship positions and fellowship opportunities available.
The Program in Japanese Studies is accepting applications for Teaching Assistants for Fall 2013. Grad students are usually hired at 33% or 50% time, working 13.2 or 20 hours per week and teaching two or three 50-minute tutorial sections per week under an instructor's supervision. Being employed as a Teaching Assistant for the Japanese language program qualifies a grad student with a substantial fee remission during each quarter of employment.
Applicants should have a native or quasi-native competence in the language, should speak the standard variety of Japanese, and should have knowledge of fundamental Japanese grammar and culture. Attendance at a two-day training session at the beginning of fall quarter is mandatory.
