Introduction to Waseda University

One of the top universities in Japan, the OUS - Waseda University program offers exchange students the opportunity to take courses, taught in English, side-by-side with Japanese students in the School for International Liberal Studies (SILS). SILS offers coursework in Asian studies, the sciences, economics and business, political science, history and linguistics, to name a few. Exchange participants also take Japanese language courses at all levels. Students are supported by SILS staff and the OUS Resident Director and Program Associate. This is primarily a homestay program so students live with host families allowing for an enhanced cultural immersion experience.
