TUJ currently has students from 60 countries and regions. As a higher education institution offering American college degrees in Japan, it is a viable option for students seeking a truly international environment.

Besides undergraduate and graduate degree programs, TUJ offers non-degree programs such as academic English and continuing education programs for the public who want to keep learning.

TUJ’s total enrollment of all the programs is about 4,000. Our Liberal Arts program keeps classes small, averaging 19 students per class. Besides long-term internships, we also hold hybrid classes to cope with Covid-19. We started HyFlex classes and next-generation leadership programs to expand the horizons of students and deepen their learning.
