Our Programs At a Glance

Mukogawa U.S. currently has 6 different programs for students from Mukogawa Women’s University to study in. Four programs are held in Fall (JC, EXT, Pharmacy, and EDU), English is held in spring, and we have a summer study abroad program available to all departments from MWU.

All classes at Mukogawa U.S. are conducted in English in order to acquire the English skills needed in a global society. In order to improve the effectiveness of learning, we have adopted a small group of about 12 language subjects and about 24 lecture subjects.

The American teachers who teach are ESL professionals who have a qualification for English education. Each class is 90 minutes, and the classes are organized according to the level of each student, and the instruction and evaluation are done according to the class, so students can improve their English ability without difficulty.

All students have the wonderful opportunity to experience a homestay with an American family in Fall and Spring Session. Additional homestays are available during Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Easter holidays. All students will also live with an American college student just like them! The RA will speak English with students, share meals and recreation, and introduce students to American culture.
