Distinguished Lecturer Series
Nine times a year, the Distinguished Lecturer Series brings internationally recognized TESOL and Applied Linguistics scholars to TUJ for intensive weekend seminars. Each seminar can be taken for elective credit for the master's and doctoral degrees.
The first three hours of each seminar (Saturday session from 14:00 to 17:00) are free and open to the general public. Alumni of TUJ's Graduate College of Education are welcome to attend the entire weekend without charge; the weekend auditing fee for others is ¥13,000.
