About the University


Toyo Gakuen University’s education is based on three main ideas:

  • Respond to the changing world
  • Foster an international mindset in students
  • Provide outstanding pastoral care of each student

With over 80 years of history, the school was first established as Toyo Women's Dental College, which transformed to Toyo Women’s College, then became the present-day Toyo Gakuen University. In April 1992, we refocused our objective to ‘provide rich educational experiences to cultivate individuals equipped with skills and talent for the international stage.’ Our university now consists of three faculties, four departments and a graduate school.

We are facing an increasingly globalized world, while Japan is also changing shape. To meet the demands and rapid progress of this new world, we must also change and respond with specialist education, with an emphasis on humanity, society and internationalization, alongside English language studies. We aim to cultivate independent individuals who can think critically, make educated judgments, and take action.
