This year, Temple University is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Japan. Although dozens of foreign universities have attempted to establish campuses in Japan, Temple has been the lone shining star. From humble beginnings, the Japan campus of Temple University (TUJ) now offers 11 undergraduate degrees to more than 1,800 students from Pennsylvania, the United States, Japan, and 60 different countries around the world. It also offers a master’s degree in TESOL, Ph.D. in applied linguistics, master’s in management, and master’s in law to several hundred more.

Corporate members: free; Members: $15; Non-Members: $25. Members must sign in to see the discount applied at checkout.

Join Matt Wilson, current TUJ dean and campus president, as he visits from Tokyo to discuss the university’s success and explain how Temple has overcome opposition from private, government, and educational forces while navigating challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic and Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. Temple University’s commitment to international education has been headlined by its full-scale campus in Japan and its education of thousands of today’s students for tomorrow’s global workplace.
