Waseda University

About the Program

The various undergraduate schools of Waseda University seek to impart not only contemporary knowledge and theory, but also the ability to apply this learning in practical and meaningful ways. Students have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves into Japanese society and culture as they take the same courses as local Japanese students. This type of education prepares students to actively participate in and contribute to modern society. By taking advantage of Waseda's vast network, Waseda graduates have the opportunity to work for first-rate companies and organizations in Japan and around the world. They are also well equipped to take active roles in research or to move on to graduate level education.
