University of East Asia was founded in 1966 and has been the only private comprehensive university in the Yamaguchi prefecture with faculties of humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The university especially aims to provide opportunities for students to acquire a specialized skill through interdisciplinary and international education curriculums.
