Temple University Japan (Branch Campus Program)

Temple University was the first US university to establish a branch campus in Japan; founded in 1982, the Japan campus has an enrollment of 2,000 students and a faculty of 75. Located in the heart of Tokyo in Minami Azabu, Temple University Japan occupies seven floors of a new office building. Degrees are offered in a variety of majors in the social sciences and humanities. TUJ is the first post-secondary educational institution to be designated a Foreign University, Japan Campus, by the Japanese Ministry of Education.

For study-abroad students, Temple offers a curriculum centered on Japanese language but extending across a wide range of subjects. In non-language classes, US students have an opportunity to study alongside bilingual Japanese students, and to gain a wide perspective on history, culture, and society in courses taught by leading scholars of history, economics, art, film, and other subjects. Credits earned at TUJ are recorded on standard Temple University transcripts and are readily transferred to other institutions.
