  3. 3. AboutTempleUniversity,JapanCampus 100%Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) is the oldest and largest foreign university in Japan. Founded in 1982, TUJ is the first institution to be officially recognized as a Foreign University, Japan Campus by Japan's Ministry of Education. It remains the only university in Japan to offer comprehensive programs in English for degree and non-degree students, and where students can earn American bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees without leaving Japan. 1 AN AMERICAN EDUCATION TUJ is an international campus of one of the United States' largest research universities, Temple University in Philadelphia. Like Main Campus, TUJ is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, one of the six regional accrediting bodies for higher education in the United States. Students at the Japan campus receive the same credits, degrees and transcripts as students at Main Campus. All classes at TUJ are taught in English and no Japanese proficiency is required to start. 3 AFFORDABLE EDUCATION Average annual tuition and fees at TUJ are around 30% less than costs for an out-of-state student at a public American university, and around 47% less than at a private American college or university. 2 STUDYING IN JAPAN TUJ offers the unique opportunity to receive an American university education in Tokyo. Japan is among the world's most influential economies and is a gateway to Asia. TUJ students study towards their college degree in English while immersing themselves in the culture, language and history of Japan outside the classroom. 4 STUDENT CENTERED Small classes of around 20 students each encourage student participation and allow faculty to provide individualized attention. Internships and independent research provide plenty of hands-on experience. Outside of class, students enjoy the best of Tokyo and Japan through excursions, workshops, campus events and student club activities. On-campus facilities include computer labs, an academic advising center, library, counseling office, editing room and tutoring center. 5 INTERNATIONAL CAMPUS Students from around the world come to TUJ for its unique mix of academic rigor, central Tokyo location and Japanese cultural immersion. Approximately 50 nationalities are represented in the student body. In addition to Japan and the United States, TUJ has students from Australia, Brazil, Taiwan, Canada, China, Russia, Germany, Kuwait, Sweden, Spain, South Korea, and many other countries. TUJ is able to sponsor Japanese student visas for its international students. 6 CAREER DEVELOPMENT Students graduate from TUJ with the linguistic, analytical and communication skills necessary to succeed in the global marketplace. About 5,000 TUJ students have gone on to careers with many of the world's leading corporations, non-profits and governments, as well as to start their own businesses. The Career Development Office is available to assist students with internships and career counseling throughout their time at TUJ and beyond. ENGLISH SPEAKING CAMPUS. AMERICAN DEGREE. TOKYO.

  5. 5. AmericanEducationalSystem As an American university, TUJ offers flexibility in enrollment, transferability of credits, and focused majors built upon a liberal arts foundation. TUJ's academic year is divided into fall, spring and summer semesters, with short breaks in between. Many students attend fall and spring semesters and take summer semester off. International students on a TUJ-sponsored student visa must register for classes during the summer if they wish to remain in Japan. New students can apply for admission for any semester. An undergraduate degree is typically completed in eight semesters of full-time study. A large American-style commencement is held every June. A bachelor's degree is awarded upon the successful completion of the General Education (GenEd) curriculum, courses required for the major, and electives. The first two years of a bachelor's degree program is typically spent fulfilling GenEd, consisting of 11 courses in nine areas. GenEd allows students to explore various areas of study before declaring a major, typically at the end of their sophomore year. Internships and independent research projects are typical in a student's junior or senior year. Students currently enrolled at another 4-year university wishing to spend a semester or academic year abroad at TUJ are welcome to apply. Students currently attending U.S. universities may apply through Temple University’s Education Abroad and Overseas Campuses Office in Philadelphia. Students enrolled at non-U.S. schools may apply directly to TUJ as non-degree students. These students earn Temple University credits which may be transferable towards a degree at their home institution.

In Tokyo, neighborhoods that have remained relatively unchanged for decades co-exist with 21st century architectural marvels. TUJ is located in the Minami-Azabu area of Tokyo’s Minato Ward. The area is a center for major embassies and businesses, and is one of the more upscale residential neighborhoods in Tokyo with a large international population. Students not yet confident in their Japanese skills will find the area easy to adjust to. Tokyo’s public transportation system is among the most extensive and efficient in the world. It is a pedestrian-friendly city with little need for a car. From TUJ it is a short walk to six major train lines that connect students to the rest of Tokyo and neighboring cities.

  7. 7. テンプル大学ジャパンキャンパス(TUJ) について Temple University has a strong and enduring commitment to international education. This is illustrated by the university's permanent campuses in Japan and Italy, by its variety of student exchange and study abroad programs, and by its number of international students, who are attracted by the university's high-quality programs. Temple has one of the most ethnically diverse student bodies of any American university. www.temple.edu/studyabroad Temple’sWorldwideNetwork New York Philadelphia Washington, D.C. Pennsylvania Temple University Main Campus Temple University Rome Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) Temple University Main Campus Temple University is a large, well-known, highly respected state-related university located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

  10. 10. UndergraduateMajorsandMinors International Business Studies (Major / Minor in General Business Studies) International Business Studies was developed in response to the contemporary global need for personnel with the knowledge and skills to work in the international arena. The curriculum encompasses a general knowledge of cultures, economies and societies, the business knowledge required to succeed in a variety of careers, and the language abilities to work across borders. The program aims to equip graduates with the skills for effective and efficient operations in a multilingual and multicultural business environment. William J. Swinton Director of International Business Studies Program Advisor and Coordinator of the International Business Studies major TUJ offers a truly international experience — inside and outside the classroom, as well as among students and faculty. This will prepare you for a challenging career anywhere in the world. The innovative International Business Studies program challenges students to integrate language studies, an understanding of world affairs and hands-on internship experience. Students will develop the global mindset that multinational institutions need in the 21st century. TUJ students learn how to work with people of similar backgrounds and with those who are often quite different in how they approach life and their studies. We train our students not only to be multilingual but also to navigate across cultures and borders. Our program teaches them to think critically, form a well-reasoned opinion, and then capably express that opinion. This is accomplished through class participation, visits to local businesses, and by bringing savvy international professionals into the classroom. With those tools, our graduates move confidently into the world and launch productive, interesting and viable global careers. Tokyo is one of the world’s most vibrant cities, and living here represents the chance to pursue an expanded range of career opportunities. Located in the heart of Tokyo’s diplomatic and international business community, TUJ consistently takes advantage of the city’s diversity and multinational character.

The programs seemed to be fairly well developed, along with a lot of support to help ease the transition. Furthermore, spending my university life in Tokyo would present me with unimaginable opportunities. When I came to TUJ, the administration was very helpful. A lot of the students were also friendly, which kept me from becoming lonely or developing severe culture shock. I chose International Business Studies as my major for two reasons – business has long been an interest of mine, and in Tokyo I would have hands-on experience with international business. The biggest skill I have gained is how to act professionally. I interned at the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan. The most important thing I learned was how to plan and execute a project with well-defined goals. After TUJ I plan on finding a job at a Japanese manufacturing company as I feel like my international skills would be best put to use in being a part of a traditional Japanese company that is seeking to either globalize or expand into overseas markets. Stuart Busby American Graduated from Liberty High School in Texas, USA Internship with British Chamber of Commerce in Japan Dr. Lippert's current research interests include the internationalization of service firms and mid-sized companies, especially the "Hidden Champions," and the global integration of Japanese/Asian firms. In his consulting work, Dr. Lippert advises Japanese and international companies primarily on matters of international strategy, marketing, organizational transformation, and cross-border M&A. Prior to joining the TUJ faculty, Dr. Lippert was the Managing Partner Japan of Simon-Kucher & Partners, a global strategy and marketing consulting firm, and a consultant with McKinsey & Company.

  11. 11. UndergraduateMajorsandMinors International Affairs (Major) International Affairs is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary subject which covers political science, geography, economics and history. It explores international cooperation and conflict, poverty and development, the nature and causes of war, nationalism and social change, and other issues. Focusing especially upon Japan and its place in Asia and the world, it requires students to study regions besides East Asia and the United States. Students must undertake an internship and study an East Asian language. Undergraduate Majors and MinorsUndergraduate Majors and Minors Matthew Linley Teacher of the year 2013 Director of Research and Assistant Professor of International Relations Advisor and Coordinator of the International Affairs major On one level, international affairs is the study of relations between states, but it is also about the relations between cultures. While rooted in political science, international affairs encompasses the study of history, geography and society as a means of understanding the complexity of the world we live in. TUJ’s diverse and international student body brings different experiences and information from various cultures into the classroom. This spurs wide-ranging and extremely valuable discussions. Another wonderful thing about TUJ as a place to study international affairs is our access to practitioners. We’re located in a part of Tokyo that is home to most of the major embassies, so we can easily visit these embassies, and also persuade embassy staff to come talk to us. In addition, we have good relations with various think tanks and members of the government and the bureaucracy. I believe our ability to interact with practitioners and nongovernmental organizations is probably unrivaled anywhere else in Asia. Studying at TUJ is interesting and compelling, but it’s also demanding and challenging. TUJ will give you an educational experience you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Fortunately, TUJ did, so here I am. Coming to Tokyo was scary and exciting. TUJ is a lot smaller than Main Campus so it is easier to get to know people and find your way around. Also, people at TUJ are friendly and eager to help. I like the class sizes as well. It allows for easier discussions between students and the professor. For my internship, I worked in Public Relations at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. I collected stories about Afghanistan for the embassy’s website as well as their newsletter. I also helped write speeches and press releases. It was a very rewarding experience. I learned it takes all staff working together for an embassy to function smoothly. I also had the opportunity to learn more about Afghanistan – its food, its culture and the language. After TUJ, I would like to go to graduate school for human rights and development, or work with an international non-profit organization.

  12. 12. UndergraduateMajorsandMinors Communication Studies (Major) Embracing a variety of disciplines from Temple’s highly ranked School of Media & Communication (SMC), the Communication Studies major covers media studies and production, film and media arts, journalism, speech, and theater. So that they can develop as professionals familiar with both the practice and theory of communications, students may undertake an optional internship. My sister is a senior at Temple, so I knew about Temple’s many campuses. I knew I wanted to travel and be in a new environment. Since I’ve always had an interest in Japanese culture, TUJ seemed like the perfect choice. I originally came with the intention of being a Japanese major, but after hearing about Temple’s DBMD (Dual Bachelor’s Master’s Degree) program, I decided to become a Communication Studies major with a minor in Art and a certificate in Japanese. I am really happy at TUJ. It is a wonderful place to get a great education in a global environment. There are so many teachers and students of various nationalities, which creates a culturally enriching atmosphere. The courses are interesting, too. Many have improved my ability to think critically and analyze more thoroughly, as well as stress the importance of teamwork and networking. These skills will benefit me in any career path I choose. While I am undecided on what I want to do after university, my academic goal is to get accepted into the DBMD program. I also want to participate in a summer session in Rome. I want to make use of all the opportunities TUJ has to offer and enjoy life. Delilah Joy Romasanta American Graduated from The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School in Pennsylvania, USA Ronald Carr Associate Professor of Film and Media Arts Advisor and Coordinator of the Communication Studies major Our Communication Studies program takes an interdepartmental approach. For example, students who have an interest in filmmaking can study videography, editing and sound. Those with an interest in journalism can work in magazine writing, the online space and broadcasting. Our goal is to develop students intellectually and prepare them for professional-level competency in media. Being in Tokyo is superior for internships, given the international reach of both Japanese and foreign media. Over the years, our students have received internships at many foreign bureaus, public relations and advertising companies, and startup internet firms. Students who pursue communications as a career have to be creative, flexible, and possess a critical mind. Self-motivation is also very important; if you work in film, television, radio or advertising, you must be able to pick up where someone has left off, put the pieces together, and take over. These are the qualities we emphasize in the program. The communications realm is changing rapidly. You must be international, open and flexible to succeed. TUJ allows you to get an education from a topnotch faculty as well as experience a new culture and gain a wider perspective. Required Courses Communication and Public Life Media Convergence/ Mass Media and Society Sophomore Seminar One course in each of the following categories: Communication Theory Research Methods Analysis Cross-Cultural Perspectives One of the following: Contemporary Media Environments courses (Seven electives in three different courses from Media Studies and Production, Journalism, and Film, Media Arts and Theater) Communication Studies Major of Distinction (Five electives in SMC courses, three semesters of a foreign language, and a two-semester thesis) Sample Curriculum The 3+2 Dual Bachelor's Master's Program in Communication Studies allows students to accelerate completion of both undergraduate and master’s degrees within five years. See page 17 for details. 11
  13. 13. UndergraduateMajorsandMinors Asian Studies (Major /Minor) Asian Studies features an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the Asia-Pacific region’s fast-growing economies, rapid social change, environmental challenges, and rich cultural traditions. Students may specialize in international relations, religion, art history, economics or history. Asian Studies majors must study an East Asian language. Required Courses Two of the following: Chinese and Japanese Literature in Cultural Context Geography of East and South Asia Introduction to East Asia ・China ・Japan Asian Studies Electives Six electives in Asian Studies from three different subject areas Writing Intensive One of the following: Asian Diaspora Japanese Popular Culture and Its Literature Introduction to Islam Language Requirement One of the following: Chinese Intermediate II Japanese Intermediate II Korean Intermediate II Senior Writing Seminar Sample Curriculum Jeff Kingston Professor of Asian Studies and History Advisor and Coordinator of the Asian Studies major Asian Studies is one of the strongest majors at TUJ, and it plays to the strengths of our faculty. If you believe that the passport to the future includes having good English language skills, computer skills, and critical thinking abilities, TUJ is a very attractive option. The Asian Studies major really prepares students for excellent careers in the Asia-Pacific region. Our graduates go on to jobs in a variety of different fields, including the private business sector, international organizations, NGOs and journalism. And since Asia is clearly the future for Japan, keeping Japan’s relations with Asia strong is increasingly vital. You won’t just be studying what’s in your textbooks, either. Working as an intern at an organization, for example, you’ll see firsthand what you’re learning in the classroom playing out in the real world. You’ll have access to a wide variety of internships in Tokyo, as well as great resources when you want to do a research project. If you need to investigate migration in Asia, for example, the offices of the UNHCR, the International Organization of Migration, and many Japanese NGOs are all located here. Being in Tokyo —Asia’s leading capital— puts enormous resources at your disposal. I found TUJ while living in Japan and searching for a global university. While studying at TUJ’s Academic English Program, I felt a warm welcome from teachers and staff. What I continue to like most about TUJ is its uniqueness – being able to study in Japan while also exploring opportunities at other Temple campuses. Through the IUT [intra-university transfer] program, I was able to study at Main Campus in Philadelphia in fall 2011, and am planning to return there to graduate with a degree in Asian Studies. I would like to learn more about Asia, specifically Japan, as well as developing Asian countries and their relationships with developed countries such as the U.S., Japan and those in Europe. What I learn about different kinds of people and how to interact with them will undoubtedly help me in my future career. Going forward, I plan to continue my studies and improve my English while also looking for a rewarding job, where I will have opportunities to meet people from around the world. I also plan on continuing with my volunteer work.

  14. 14. UndergraduateMajorsandMinors Art (Major / Minor) Kaoru Sakurai Assistant Professor of Art Advisor and Coordinator of the Art major Our Art major is primarily designed for those who don’t have an art background, but we are also equipped for students who have already studied art formally. We offer everything from foundation courses such as drawing, painting and two-dimensional and three-dimensional design on up to an advanced level of study. Art majors are also required to take digital-based courses involving digital photography, computers, and the Internet. These are essential skills for finding a job in the art field and moving your career forward. I usually have students from five or six different countries studying in one classroom. They learn how to inspire others, not just through verbal communication but also through their work. By inspiring others, you share a connection to what they create as well. Tokyo is known as a center of design and fashion, and lots of contemporary art comes out of this city, making it an amazing place to study art. If you want to study art in English in Tokyo, TUJ is really the best option around. We view all of Tokyo as our campus, so we work with students to utilize the dynamics of the city as a resource. True to the curriculum of Temple’s renowned Tyler School of Art, the Art major focuses on visual art practice within a liberal arts context. Courses include design, drawing, painting, three-dimensional design, printmaking, digital photography, digital imaging, Internet imaging, moving images, motion graphics, media arts and art history. The faculty teaches studio art from the viewpoint of its connection to such disciplines as psychology, literature, philosophy, mathematics, biology and physics.

I thought this would expand my career opportunities after I graduate. My parents see I am serious and support me. Everyone at TUJ is friendly. The campus is small, so there are many chances to see and talk to students from all around the world. There are many field trips in the art classes, not only to major museums but also to small galleries. These lead me to a better understanding and enriched perspective of art. I have been pursuing painting at Main Campus since fall 2012. I would like to take advantage of various communication media that have been developed and become an unconventional artist.

  15. 15. UndergraduateMajorsandMinors Undergraduate Majors and MinorsUndergraduate Majors and Minors Japanese Language (Major /Minor in Japanese) TUJ’s Japanese Language major is a unique program designed to offer a comprehensive Japanese language curriculum in a JSL (Japanese as a Second Language) setting. It aims to achieve advanced and well-balanced proficiency in Japanese so that students will be well-equipped with linguistic skills and fully prepared to engage with the wider scholarship of Japanese studies. It is most suitable as part of a double major to complement one of TUJ’s well-established interdisciplinary studies such as Asian Studies, International Affairs, Communication Studies, International Business Studies, and so forth. Required Courses Japanese Intermediate II Japanese Advanced I Japanese Advanced II Japanese Advanced III Japanese Advanced IV Language Skills Electives At least four of the following: Kanji II Intensive Oral Japanese: Oral Intensive II Advanced Oral Japanese Advanced Japanese Writing Structure of Japanese Language I Structure of Japanese Language II Intermediate Writing in Japanese Introduction to Consecutive Interpreting and Translation I Introduction to Consecutive Interpreting and Translation II Four Area Studies Electives (including one writing-intensive course taught in English) Senior Writing Seminar Sample Curriculum Ryoko Osada Assistant Professor of Japanese Advisor and Acting Coordinator of the Japanese Language major and Critical Languages Our program takes a functional approach to language learning. It lays a special emphasis on language acquisition and its mastery so that students establish a solid linguistic foundation through integral language courses coupled with skills-based courses. TUJ ensures an optimum language learning environment for students where they have the opportunity to pursue their studies alongside Japanese students on campus and in the local community. At TUJ, students who take up Japanese language have a strong interest in international careers, in U.S.-Japan relations and in Japan’s relations with other countries. Many pursue career opportunities in the Japanese markets where Japanese language proficiency is an absolute must. To meet such students’ needs and demands, the Japanese Language major focuses on enabling students to become functional and competent in all four language skills—reading, writing, speaking and listening—in Japanese. I first learned about TUJ when a recruiter came to my high school Japanese class. After I visited Japan on a two-week scholarship program I realized Japan was where I wanted to be. TUJ became my answer to a dream. I love the fact the even though TUJ is in Japan, it is an American university. It has been a goal of mine to become an English/Japanese translator. Though I am only in my second semester, I have already learned a great deal. Knowing about many subjects will help me as a translator. I plan to become fluent in Japanese and learn many more subjects before I leave TUJ so that I can have a good chance of succeeding. TUJ has become a step to reach my dream career, and I am looking forward to the next three years of my education here.

The senior seminar pays special attention to Japan’s place in the Asian and global economies. Psychological Studies provides a broad understanding of psychologyasthescienceofhumanbehaviorandofitsunderlying mental processes, while uniquely focusing on cross-cultural and Asian issues. Foundation courses such as developmental, clinical, social, cognitive, and organizational psychology develop students’ skills in critical thinking, research methodology, and research writing, and broaden their knowledge and deepen their understanding of pertinent cross-cultural and Asian issues. Students must participate in either an internship or a research project, both of which culminate in a final paper. 15

It analyzes and systematizes political systems, political theory, and international relations. Students sound out the dimensions of these three sectors in basic courses before they specialize. They are strongly recommended to study a foreign language. General Studies enables students, in consultation with the Academic Advising Center, to design an interdisciplinary major in the humanities (critical languages, English, philosophy and religion) or the social sciences (American studies, Asian studies, economics, history, political science and psychology). Students may create an area of study that embraces an intellectual theme, such as environmental and population control, human rights, war and peace, or moral and ethical responsibilities. 16

UndergraduateMajorsandMinors 2+2 and 3+2 Programs with Main Campus in Philadelphia Credit Exchange Program with Musashi University Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies Temple University is offering 2+2 and 3+2 programs in which students study at both the Japan campus and Main Campus in Philadelphia to complete their degrees. Computer Science Health Information Management Communication Studies 2+2 Programs The first two years at the Japan campus, followed by two years at Main Campus This program is best for students interested in pursuing courses of study which are not offered at the Japan campus. Students spend their first two years at the Japan campus completing most of the required General Education courses, and take a certain number of required major courses online. Students then transfer to Main Campus to complete their undergraduate degree. 3+2 Dual Bachelor’s Master’s Program The first three years at the Japan campus, followed by two years at Main Campus This program is best for students interested in accelerating completion of both undergraduate and master’s degrees within five years. After completing the first three years and most of the required undergraduate courses at the Japan campus, students enroll in the master's program and study the final two years at Main Campus. In the fourth year, students take their remaining required undergraduate courses while also taking courses in the master's degree program. TUJ and Musashi University have introduced a credit exchange program which provides students at both institutions with enhanced educational opportunities as well as facilitates academic collaborations and exchanges. Students who participate in this program are able to take courses that are not offered at their home institution without having to pay extra tuition. Credits from either institution will count towards graduation at the student’s home institution. For international students at TUJ majoring in Japanese Language or Asian Studies, this program will provide excellent opportunities to challenge themselves by taking classes offered in Japanese at Musashi. They can also get to know more Japanese students through cultural exchanges.

  23. 23. ScholarshipsandFinancialAid Scholarships and Grants Incoming degree-seeking students with demonstrated academic excellence and other exceptional qualifications are eligible for scholarships that cover the matriculation fee or a significant portion of full-time tuition. To be considered, applicants apply for admission by the eligibility deadline and mark “yes” in the scholarship box on the admissions application form. Students with demonstrated financial need may be eligible for need-based grants. Continuing Student Scholarships Full-time undergraduate students who have completed 12 credits are eligible. Scholarship awards are based on academic merit and, in some cases, financial need. The Noddin Scholarship for Continuing Students Donated by the family of Mr. Robert Noddin, this scholarship will support ten academically successful but financially challenged continuing students per year by providing US$5,000 (approximately ¥480,000) per student to supplement tuition. Mr. Noddin, President & Chief Executive Officer of AIG Japan Holdings KK, is a strong supporter of TUJ and has been a member of TUJ's Board of Overseers since 2010. TUJ will increase each of the Noddin Scholarships with matching funds to make the total equal to 9-credit tuition (¥558,000). Diamond Research Scholars Program Undergraduate students have the opportunity to engage in a focused, mentored research or creative arts project during the summer and fall, including a US$2,750 stipend during the summer. External Scholarships Many cultural and academic organizations, businesses and government offices offer scholarships. Research online and ask your teachers and supervisors to see what may be available. Check the TUJ website for links to useful scholarship search sites. U.S. Financial Aid U.S. citizens and permanent residents can apply for U.S. federal financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). TUJ uses the same FAFSA code as Temple Main Campus, 003371. Non-U.S. citizens may be eligible for financial aid from their home country’s government. Contact the department of education to see what may be available for study abroad students. Veterans Benefits Students eligible for the GI Bill (Post-9/11 and Montgomery) may use these funds towards tuition and fees at TUJ. In most cases, the Post-9/11 GI Bill will cover 80%-100% of tuition, fees (other than the application fee) and books, and approximately US$1,600 per month for living costs. Transcripts from schools such as University of Maryland University College (UMUC) and Central Texas College (CTC), as well as military transcripts (Joint Services Transcript and Community College of the Air Force), will also be evaluated for potential transfer credit. Scholarships are offered every semester to both new and continuing TUJ students. www.tuj.ac.jp/undergrad/scholarships Both U.S. federal financial aid and veterans benefits are available to eligible U.S. citizens and permanent residents. www.tuj.ac.jp/undergrad/financial_aid Scholarships and Financial AidScholarships and Financial Aid Temple University, Japan Campus is a great school because of the diversity of students. This was one of the main reasons I chose TUJ. After being enlisted in the United States Navy for eight years, I became accustomed to being around and working with people from various backgrounds and various parts of the world. The GI Bill assisted me in pursuing my college degree, which would have otherwise been unachievable without putting myself into debt. The revisions made to the GI Bill in 2009 provided more benefits, most importantly living expenses, which allowed me to focus on school instead of trying to work and attend school full-time. After I graduate from TUJ, I plan to attend Japanese language school to improve my Japanese and apply for a government position at the U.S. Embassy or on one of the U.S. military bases in Japan. I decided to stay in Japan because I have established a life here with my wife and kids. Tokyo is a city filled with people from many different cultures and I believe such environments are healthy and better represent the world around us. I think it is very important that my children are familiar with both their American and Japanese cultures. De’ Andre Scott American Political Science major/Art minor GI Bill Recipient 22

CareerDevelopment Career Fair Company Information Sessions Every year the TUJ career fair brings representatives from 15 to 20 Japanese and foreign companies to TUJ to meet with current students and alumni to discuss career opportunities. These companies are eager to meet promising students who might be significant assets to their organizations. The career fair gives both students and alumni the opportunity to meet with a variety of company representatives and discover what kind of employees companies are looking for. This is also a great opportunity to practice interview skills. All TUJ students and alumni are welcome to attend. The Career Development Office also conducts individual company information sessions throughout the year. In these sessions, the invited company usually talks for 40-60 minutes, followed by a Q&A session. Recently, more companies in Japan are hiring non- Japanese college graduates who are bilingual. There are many job opportunities in Japan for multilingual and multicultural people. Higher demand for those who can play an active part in this global market is one of the reasons why TUJ maintains a high job placement rate despite the current economic situation. The Career Development Office provides a variety of support services to help students prepare for job hunting in Japan. As of July 2013 Kentaro Sawa Career Development Office Manager’s Message Employment Rate 96.3% for graduates seeking full-time employment 27

These days, The Japan Times continues to aspire to those founders' aims of providing Japanese domestic news to the world in English. In recent years, as interest in Japanese art and culture has increased abroad, we are confident that the mission of our Arts, Entertainment, and Features Division has become even more important. For the past few years, we have sponsored interns from TUJ, and have been happy to discover that many TUJ students share our beliefs. While interning with us, TUJ students have demonstrated healthy international standpoints, proactive attitudes no doubt fostered by their American education, impressive bilingual communication skills, and diverse interests. Under the guidance of professional editors, student interns have worked side- by-side with professional journalists in conducting interviews and writing articles. The students’ work includes introducing events, interviewing celebrities, and reporting from the front lines of Japanese culture. It is a pleasure to work with TUJ students and assist them in building their professional skills. The Japan Times Mr. Edan Corkill Manager of the Arts, Entertainment and Features Division, The Japan Times Internships and Alumni ProfilesInternships and Alumni Profiles I went to university in the United States for quite a while, but I had an opportunity to work for a growing Fortune 100 company, Best Buy, and I decided to dedicate myself to making that a career. I did very well at Best Buy, but I always regretted not finishing my degree. And after the financial crisis of 2008, I reevaluated my goals and decided I wanted to pursue an international career. I was very interested when I saw the International Business Studies major offered at TUJ and I went forward with my application. The classes and professors made the experience very enjoyable and challenging. The hands-on approach to teaching international business made me feel I was gaining practical knowledge along with theory. The pinnacle experience for me was my internship at GE Capital Japan. This world-class international company exposed me to all the facets of working in structured finance. I felt that the employees there really cared about my development, and gave me challenging and rewarding projects. GE Capital Japan was a good mix of learning and producing something of real value for the company.

I wanted to get an American education as I was keen on working in an international organization. After doing some research I found out about Temple. The university seemed perfect as it is located in the center of Tokyo, giving me an opportunity to experience Asian culture as well as study with students from around 50 countries. I was able to debate, present, work on teams and make life-long connections with people whom I thought I would never be able to know. I really enjoyed the international environment and wanted to find a workplace where I could get a similar international atmosphere, leverage my skills, and constantly challenge myself. My current role as an operations analyst in Goldman Sachs is exactly this – I am able to work with diverse teams and am constantly challenged to think outside the box and do better. Coming from Russia, living in Japan and studying in an American university helped open my eyes to a very interesting world of opportunities and find an excellent firm to work for like Goldman Sachs. William Jun Wei Yeow Singaporean 2012, B.A. in Art and Japanese Language Creative & Web Design Department, Rakuten, Inc. I joined TUJ in 2008, and it took me nearly 5 years to complete a double major in Art and Japanese Language. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate the experience. Through TUJ, I was able to find part-time work, intern at a sizable Japanese company, and gain valuable knowledge and insight into local job hunting. It is owing to such experiences that I now work at Rakuten, Inc. Looking at what I have achieved, I cannot help but express my sincerest gratitude to those who have made my dream of living and working in Japan a reality. There is the staff and faculty at TUJ, and the many friends with whom I have had the pleasure of sharing both good times and bad over the years; I cannot name them all. I can go on about my experiences at TUJ, but to do so would barely be scratching the surface. Perhaps it is enough to say that when I graduated, I did not want it to end. TUJ has given me both professional skill and experience, and personal memories to cherish for years to come. I hope to do justice to both as I move forward with the next stage of my life.

Those on a TUJ-sponsored Japanese student visa are required to spend their first semester in TUJ housing, and may extend their stay on a space-available basis. Housing options include dormitories or living with a Japanese family on a homestay. TUJ uses two dorm facilities in the Tokyo area. Students are assigned to a facility based on gender. Both facilities offer ample opportunities for TUJ students to interact with Japanese students attending other universities in the Tokyo area. Homestays Homestays offer students the chance to live with a Japanese family instead of in a dormitory for their first semester. It is a wonderful opportunity to practice Japanese and experience modern Japanese culture first-hand. Two meals are provided each day and students have their own room. In order to make the best of this experience, students are expected to adjust to the host family's living arrangement, "live locally," eat a Japanese diet with the host family, participate in Japanese family life, and spend meaningful time with the family. Preference for selection will be given to students who demonstrate cultural sensitivity, flexibility, and a genuine interest and commitment to Japanese culture by speaking Japanese (or being willing to learn, if a beginner) and abiding by Japanese values and customs. The Office of Student Services (OSS) provides information and holds a housing fair every semester to help students learn about private housing options for when they move out of the dormitory or homestay. I originally planned to stay at TUJ for a semester or two. I decided to participate in TUJ’s homestay program because I thought it would be the best opportunity for me to immerse myself in Japanese culture and home life. We went on various trips and my homestay family took me to concerts and Japanese culture classes. I have decided to stay long term in Japan because of my homestay experience. I credit all my Japanese language skills to them as well. 33
