Whether you’re looking to brush up on your Japanese skills or branch out into a new area of expertise, Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) has a number of non-degree continuing education courses that could be a useful addition to your skill set.
The university offers a diverse curriculum of continuing education courses, from subjects related to personal interests to those focused on business and professional development. The program’s wide array of courses is complemented by a set of brand new facilities open to enrolled students, including one of Tokyo’s largest English-language libraries, lectures and events, an on-campus art gallery and various networking opportunities.
Courses range from full-semester (approximately 10 weeks) to one- or two-day workshops, meaning there is even something for visitors passing through Tokyo. Classes are generally held on weekday evenings between 7pm and 9pm or on the weekends, so working professionals can easily slot a class into their regular schedule. For those interested and looking to join a course, good news: the next semester starts on January 20, 2020 and there’s still plenty of time to sign up. Here we introduce five useful and exciting courses that start this new year.
