Foreign language education is not just the study of other languages. A broad understanding of the world's cultures behind those languages is also an essential component. In order to attain such knowledge and specialization, seminars are held for independent study from the second year onwards. Through practical, hands-on study, students will acquire the skills to communicate with others and work in a broad range of jobs around the world.
Students select 1 language course at the time of taking the entrance examination from English, German, Chinese, French, Spanish, or Korean. This language of specialization is then systematically studied for 4 years.
*Students cannot select a course of the mother tongue.
One distinguishing feature of Teikyo University is the flexibility given to its students to study in fields of their interest outside of their faculty or department. Many of the classes offered in the Faculties of Economics, Law, Liberal Arts, Language Studies, and Education as well as the Junior College at the Hachioji Campus may be taken by any student as an elective course, and up to 34 credits acquired in this way can be applied to graduation requirements.

In the Department of Language Studies, the curriculum focuses on not only language skills, but multifaceted cultural research as well. Following the premise that language skills alone do not make someone a member of the international community, students will also deepen their knowledge and understanding behind their language of study.
