(Open to students at all proficiency levels)

Drawing upon our vast experience in combining language and culture in multi-level classes, this course provides an opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand with Japanese students through activities such as playing traditional musical instruments, calligraphy, cooking, visiting JFOU club activities while improving their Japanese language skills. This course is designed to help students improve their language skills through five to six activities focusing on aspects of Japanese culture and society. Each “experiential activity” consists of three phases: “Preparation,” “Experiential Activity” and “Feedback.” Two to three class meetings will be spent on one activity. Typically, one class meeting is allocated to each of the “Preparation” and “Experiential Activity” phases. The preparation involves learning words and expressions as well as learning or reviewing grammatical items to be used in a particular activity. The “experiential activity” is the actual experience. Volunteer students whose native language is Japanese are brought in to work with summer program participants in these class meetings for both language support and authentic interaction in Japanese. After each activity, students write a short report according to their proficiency level. At the end of the course, students will conduct further research on one of the activities (topics) experienced earlier in the course and write a report in Japanese, which should be accompanied by a portfolio. Depending on the number of students, students will give an oral presentation as well.... [-]

Best Summer Courses in Humanities Studies 2019. “From the Idea to the Product” Are you born to be an artist…or an entrepreneur? It is a common preconception that Art and Science belong to parallel universes, despite of the fact that when it comes to decision making and problem solving, the human brain does not process information by algorythms ... The contamination of Art and Science has proved to be successful in many domains over the centuries and it has reached its peak in the Renaissance, that infact has always been a model for innovation, “even better than Silicon Valley today”, in the opinion of researchers such as Eric Weiner.

As the debate about how to classify Management and Entrepreneurship, whether in the field of Sciences or in the field of Arts, has been endless and still left unsolved, and in the meantime generations and generations of people get stuck in this dilemma and sometimes, even lost, when they have to make a decision about their career…this year we will give our contribution to the research on this topic with a Certificate Program created in collaboration with Campus Citta’ del Sapere and Centro Sperimentale di Arte Contemporanea IS.Ca.PI, which aims at providing a full immersion experience in the daily life of the Renaissance Artist....
