Instructional Design


The purpose and philosophy of MIC has led to the development of a curriculum that integrates academic content (disciplinary and multidisciplinary courses in comparative humanities and social sciences) with the development of English language skills. The achievement of the College’s goals depends on the simultaneous achievement of the two objectives of content learning and language development. This joint emphasis on both intellectual development and language competence is the characteristic that most clearly distinguishes MIC from other institutions in Japan and elsewhere. Although attention is given to both objectives during all four years of a student’s program, the relative emphasis given to each changes as students progress from their first to their last years, with greater attention given to language competence during the first two years of a student’s program, and to content learning during the second two years.
