American Studies Program

Every year, students from Tokyo International University endeavor to acquire English communication skills and specialized knowledge through this unique program.

The English Language and American Studies Program offers a study abroad experience for students from Tokyo International University (TIU) in Kawagoe, Japan. Willamette and TIU have been sister universities since 1965, and this program, begun in 1989, was created by these institutions to broaden and deepen their educational exchange.

Students enroll in language and liberal arts courses, with all credit transferable to their degree programs at TIU. They gain cross-cultural awareness and enhance their abilities to study, live and work in intercultural environments. As a result, students are better prepared for future careers in which international experience and intercultural skills are viewed as assets.
