A bridge of peace between Japan and Asia and the world — Seigakuin University

Seigakuin University offers a liberal arts education based on Christian ideals and implements small group teaching to nurture each and every student to contribute to world peace.

In order to become an internationally-minded person, it is important not only to become proficient in English, but to have the ability to understand and feel compassion for others.

Seigakuin University provides transformative education that stresses cooperation over competition.

I am from Thailand and I have studied in this university for three years, having had many good experiences from it.

I think this university supports foreign students very well. If you don't understand Japanese so much, don't worry about it. They have special classes for improving your Japanese language abilities. Furthermore, if you have any problems, you can go to the learning center for students and they will help you so that you don't feel like you are alone.

Finally, if you would like to study in Japan, I strongly recommend Seigakuin University.

Departments and Faculties

  • Faculty of Political Science & Economics
  • Political Science & Economics Department
  • In this advanced information society, we can communicate with people all over the world freely regardless of time or distance. At the same time that you learn more about the world, learn deeply about the local town or area in which you live. Just like fostering friendships with people from another country, foster your ties with the local community. This faculty is based on these perspectives.
    Political Science & Economics Department:

  • Faculty of Humanities
  • European-American Culture Department
  • Japanese Culture Department
  • The word "humanity" comes from the Latin word "humanitas," which broadly means human nature. While following the tradition of humanities in Christian culture, on which this university was founded, we aim to integrate that with modern humanities studies, which combine education and culture. Overall, this faculty is the place to learn comprehensively about humankind itself and human cultures.
    European-American Culture Department:
    Japanese Culture Department:

  • Faculty of Human Welfare
  • Child Studies Department
  • Developmental Child Psychology Department
  • Human Welfare Department
  • On a foundation of general anthropology, the Faculty of Human Welfare pursues comprehensive child studies and nurtures specialists who have welfare in mind. The Child Studies Department conducts new, comprehensive research of children in relation to a society with a low birthrate. At the Human Welfare Department, we aim to train specialists who are determined to develop a new welfare culture in an aging society. The Developmental Child Psychology Department opened in April 2012 to cultivate the ability to support the growth of children in difficult situations.
