History

 Japanese statesman who served as the prime minister, Shigenobu Okuma founded Waseda University, then called Tokyo Senmon Gakko, on October 21, 1882. In the first class, 80 students enrolled in the Departments of Political Science, Law, English, and Physical Science. 

Education

The University was established with a focus on educating the common people, and Fostering of Good Citizens is one of the three founding principles. In today’s context of globalization, it also means Good Global Citizenship. The founding principles and the Waseda Spirit which has grown from them are our legacy and the culture which we embrace.

Research
