Overview of TUJ and CIS Major

Based in Philadelphia, Temple University is a public Carnegie-designated R1 research university that ranks in the top 350 of all universities worldwide according to Times Higher Education. With approximately 30,000 students, Temple maintains a multi-campus system extending from Pennsylvania to Rome to Japan.

Established in 1982, the Japan campus of Temple University (TUJ) is a full-service branch campus that educates students from nearly 70 countries in English in its undergraduate programs, graduate programs (law, business, graduate education), and non-degree programs (continuing education and corporate education). TUJ is the oldest and largest branch campus of a foreign university in Japan. More details about TUJ are available at www.tuj.ac.jp. Its strategic priorities and key objectives are accessible, Strategic Priorities & Key Objectives. TUJ has increasing enrollments, is financially healthy, and has plans to hire over a dozen new full-time faculty members this year.

TUJ offers undergraduate programs to a broad mix of over 2,000 Japanese and non-Japanese degree-seeking students who will earn their degrees from Temple University through the Japan campus. Every semester, additional students from Temple’s main campus and other universities converge on our campus for a short-term study abroad experience.

In one of the most dynamic cities in the world, we offer thirteen full undergraduate majors ranging from Art to International Business to Psychological Studies. Our faculty and staff is international, with 43 full time faculty joined by experienced administrators and many part-time adjunct faculty from the professions, business and the arts. TUJ holds classes in the fall and spring semesters (15 weeks) and over a well-enrolled 10-week summer semester.

The BA and BS programs in Computer Science (CS) are designed for students whose major interest is the general study of computer science rather than a particular application area. These programs provide students with a broad education in traditional computer science concepts including algorithms, software engineering, computer architecture, programming languages, data structures, operating systems, networks, artificial intelligence, and image processing.

TUJ is looking for part-time faculty members who can teach undergraduate-level courses ranging from General Education to more specialized courses, depending on demand.
