- Tama University is for students who seek a well rounded education, academic excellence, personal attention, inspiration, and support. -
Tama University is known for its academic rigor, its outstanding student-centered curriculum, superb faculty, and beautiful campus. It is a place where teachers and students - or students among themselves - "communicate" their burning ambitions. It is also a place where new ideas are created.
Students are active participants in learning.
Unlike other traditional Japanese schools, Tama University has left the former lecture-oriented, or unidirectional knowledge-transmitting, lecture styles behind, aiming to be a dialog-based "contemporary tutoring school" which emphasizes the importance of the holistic growth of its students. Acquiring analytical skills is as important as mastering factual knowledge. We value active communication among students, faculty, and staff, and we emphasize the importance of an education style through which students can better realize their true selves as a result of contemplating questions such as "Why did I come to university?" "How should I lead my life from now on?" and "How should I understand the relationship between society and myself?"
Tama University is proud of its dynamic and demanding curriculum. With advice and counsel from faculty and staff, students experience a rigorous academic program within their areas of concentration. In addition to well designed core courses, students are encouraged to pursue their intellectual interests by choosing diverse elective courses to expand their intellectual horizons and prepare them for promising careers in the field of their choice.
Although a small university, Tama University draws men and women from throughout Japan as well as from other Asian countries. Our students are distinguished by their creativity, self-direction, leadership, and enthusiasm for a collaborative style of learning.
