The Thematic Studies Abroad (TSA) program at Lawrence University is a study abroad partnership program with Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. Each year, Lawrence welcomes 15 - 20 TSA students from Waseda for a year of study on our campus.  The theme for the TSA program at Lawrence is global studies and issues.  In addition to developing students' understanding of contemporary global issues, the program emphasizes the development of students' English proficiency.
