• Summer Outbound Program (Biennial)


  • Experience Cool Side of Japan: Sapporo, 2020

    MHCC@SGU program is a new program that MHCC is starting in the summer 2020 with 10 students. They will be hosted at Sapporo Gakuin University in Ebetsu, Hokkaido. Ebetsu is a sister city of Gresham.

    Just like our past programs, all participants will have opportunities to experience Japanese culture by interacting with the local people including the students at SGU and host families. During the weekday mornings, participants will be taking Comparative Culture class taught by MHCC instructor. The topics covered in the class will have direct connections to the homestay, field trips and daily encounters the participants have while in Japan. Field trips include destinations to some historical and cultural sites. This includes a day trip to Sapporo which is one of the three biggest cities in Hokkaido.

    A group of students from SGU will come in August 2020 to study at MHCC. That will make this outbound program even more interesting. MHCC participants of this program will have opportunity to interact with them at their college, and they can meet again in August, this time at MHCC.

    This study abroad program is a perfect introduction to Japan for anyone who is considering the study of Japanese language, culture and society.
