Affiliated Colleges and Universities (8カ国43大学)

Offering learning opportunities on the international stage

Ever since the college was founded through the untiring efforts of an American missionary over 130 years ago, a commitment to international education has remained an important pillar of the college. Nurturing young women who can contribute to international understanding, the college has concentrated on expanding the scope of its exchange programs. Its affiliated institution network covers 35 universities and colleges and one consortium in eight countries. Most summer programs and study-abroad programs allow students to transfer credits acquired at other institutions for graduation. Studying and living abroad and communicating with students from around the world offers priceless experience to those who participate in these exchange programs.
