Study at ICU
ICU (International Christian University) is a private, four-year liberal arts college in Tokyo. Founded on the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ICU aims to cultivate “responsible global citizens” who will contribute to world peace and to help people in diverse backgrounds live together harmoniously.
ICU has been a pioneer in liberal arts education since its founding in 1953, pursuing, as its name suggests, international, Christian and academic missions. Visit ICU’s website.
