Master's Programmes



Teikyo University was founded in 1966. Originally it had just two faculties: the Faculty of Liberal Arts, with English Literature and Japanese Literature departments, and the Faculty of Economics and Department of Economics.


Starting with faculties of Economics and Liberal Arts, Teikyo University has been developing as a solid comprehensive university, offering a wide range of additional programs including School of Medicine.


  • Teikyo University boasts a number of dedicated and specialized laboratories and research centers across a wide range of disciplines including medicine, psychology, biology, sport, education and liberal arts.
  • In addition to research and educational programs, the Asia International Institute of Infectious Diseases Control, established in June 2013, serves as a central source of information and updates on infectious diseases.
  • Teikyo University Centre for Evidence Based Medicine is a high-tech practical research facility for evidence-based evaluation and analysis of health care strategies and initiatives, with an emphasis on supporting clinical research studies at the university.


Since we make defining goals and employability a priority early on, we give guidance to all new students with personalized career design maps designed for new students. We allow students the opportunity to think about the person they want to become with our mandatory "Designing Life Practice I/II" course, and improve employability with our comprehensive personal development support (career education).
