About the Distinguished Lecturer Series

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 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 (Non-refundable). Registrants will be charged the amount of a credit-course (Tokyo: ¥89,000 Osaka: ¥85,600).

In light of the global impact of COVID-19, the weekend seminars will take different formats in fall 2021. Details about each seminar can be checked from the seminar description.
