Learning not only occurs in books and courses, but also anytime and anywhere in life, such as in an activity, a movie, a dialogue, etc.

In MSA, every student, teacher, and staff are the founders of the community culture. We encourage each member of the community to initiate or participate in activities, and we hope that the students will be involved in developing and designing all activities to realize student-centered education, and provide a deeper self-exploration and learning environment. In MSA, based on deep understanding and practice of experiential learning concept, community activities enable students to acquire the knowledge they expect from plans, action and reflection, and participants to develop their competences in an open, positive, and mutually supportive environment.
