As an international campus representing more than 40 nationalities, Lakeland University Japan (LUJ) offers a distinctive US undergraduate program in a unique setting in Shinjuku. An accredited branch campus of a Wisconsin university, LUJ offers a two-year Associate of Arts program that allows students to extend their studies on the main campus or transfer to other universities, where they can earn a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree.

Lakeland University Japan, a branch campus of an accredited Wisconsin university, offers a two-year Associate of Arts program. Students can then extend their studies at our main campus or another university to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree.

  • We are a branch campus of an American University located in Shinjuku that offers an accredited undergraduate program as well as continuing education for American, Japanese, and international students.

  • Prospective students choose our school because we offer an American degree and instruction in English. We also offer small classes that are conducted in safe surroundings, in the comfort of Japan.

  • Aside from the high-quality instruction of course work in English, LUJ’s greatest strength is its size. Because the student body is small, faculty and staff know all students by name and provide individual attention and assistance. LUJ’s unique “2 + 2” program allows students to take courses in Japan while earning an Associate in Arts degree and half the credits towards a Bachelor’s degree here or abroad. Thanks to this program, students have a better chance of transferring to a competitive university in the United States or elsewhere than they would have had applying directly after graduating from high school.
