School of International Liberal Arts

MIC students study a wide variety of liberal arts subjects in English. During the first one and a half years of this sheltered immersion system, most classes are team-taught by a specialist in TEFL and a specialist in the content area. Students learn the basic concepts and methods of the subject area and, at the same time, build English skills. Classes in English, the Humanities, Social Sciences, and General Science use cooperative learning, small-groups, and active learning techniques to help students get used to studying in English and to build thinking skills.

In the first semester of the second year, students prepare for study abroad by studying cross-cultural communication and by enriching their understanding of both Japanese and foreign cultures. Students then spend the next semester (16 weeks) at a university in an English-speaking country.

In the third and fourth years, students focus on a major and write a senior thesis of 6500 words or more in English.

In addition to this English curriculum, students take Japanese language classes throughout their four years at MIC.
