'U' Conducts Integrated Study of Japan
S* * * * * * * * *
By EVA SIMON
A unique experiment in the in-
tegrated study of an important
world area is being carried on at
the University's Center for Jap-
Under a staff of experts in eight
University departments, the Cen-
ter seeks to give graduate students
an extensive knowledge of all the
social sciences and humanities as
they apply to Japan.
* * *
A LIMIT OF 10 graduate stu-
dents may enroll in the course in
any one year. The students work
for a Master's degree in Far East-
ern Studies and at the same time
study in one department of the
social sciences or humanities in
preparation for the Ph.D. degree.
The Center offers courses in
the anthropology, economics,
fine arts, geography, history,
language, literature, sociology
and politics of Japan.
In addition, each student must
participate in a continuing re-
search seminar coordinating all
An extensive library on all
phases of Japanese life is being de-
MOST OF THE students at the
Center plan to continue research
or teach after getting their Ph.D.

GO WEST, YOUNG MAN-Thomas Wilds (left) and Victor Muramatsu, students at the Center for
Japanese Studies, point at "Seto Naikai," the Japanese inland sea, where the Center plans to set up
a field station for research. Financed by the Carnegie Foundation, the Center has set up an inter-
departmental program of studies on Japan for graduate students. Every student is required to write
a dissertation based on field wor

degree. Others want to enter the
diplomatic service. A few will ap-
ply their training in the army, the
business world or journalism.
Need for a program of Jap-
anese studies was accentuated
during the war, when the gov-
ernment was handicapped by.a
lack of qualified experts on Ja-
pan, as well as other parts of
After the war, the Social Science
Research Council, with Prof. Rob-
ert B. Hall, of the geography de-
partment, as chairman, conducted
k in Japan.
* * *
a survey of world area studies in
the United States.
The councilrecommended that
different departments of a uni-
versity should combine their spe-
cialized knowledge to conduct re-
search covering every aspect of an
individual world area.
COLUMBIA University was the
first to follow the Council's sug-
gestion by establishing a Russian
Institute. Other universities fol-
lowed suit, and in 1949 the Center
for Japanese Studies was set up at
the University of Michigan.
Language is one of the major
difficulties confronting students
at the Center. All of the students
obtained a basic speaking and
reading knowledge of Japanese
during the war in army and
navy Japanese language schools,
and many served as interpreters
and translators during the war.
They found, however, that using
Japanese research materials pre-
sented an entirely new problem, as
each period of Japanese history
made use of a different language
This requires the student to take
intensive courses in Japanese lan-
guage before he can make use of
the Center's research materials.
The Center plans to establish a
field station in Japan as soon as
negotiations with the American
occupation authorities can be
completed. Every student will be
expected to write a dissertation
based on field work in Japan.
