Pacific students can enroll in a wide range of courses taught in English in the liberal arts, business, social sciences, political science and economics. Students can also study Japanese language and culture.

Waseda is located in the heart of Tokyo, but has a campus feel. The neighborhood around Waseda is well-known for its lush, natural surroundings and centuries-old traditions, creating the best of an urban college town atmosphere.
