The social emotional learning course is a two-year applied course. Each workshop is organized around a theme that allows learners to understand and improve the cognitive and expressive capabilities of various aspects of social psychology, which are closely linked to the MSA competecny model.
Topics include gender identity, self-identity, intimate relations, brain development, emotion and expression, the art of communication, psychology and art. The seminars are held weekly and learners participate in social emotional learning courses at least once a month.
The 16-week well-being course covers nutrition, healing, mental health, physical activity and cardiovascular health. Learners can learn and understand a wide range of knowledge related to physical and mental health. For example, how to make your own exercise plan and diet plan? How to build a regular routine? What is the bottom line for cardiovascular health?
In addition to the course, we also provide individual support for learners on matters of physical and mental health on a voluntary basis or through referrals from college administrators. The process usually includes phases of “identifying individual requirements, data collection, analysis, making recommendations, and implementation” . Depending on the needs and circumstances, these phases may involve learners, faculty, coaches, theme leaders, and parents. Through this process, we will also determine whether specialized external assistance is required.
We believe that a good “passion” meets the four criteria: what you are good at, what you enjoy, what the world needs, and what others will pay you to do. In addition to finding out what you are good at and enjoy by working with people and connecting with society, the center offers a range of other related experiences to help you understand career information and world trends.
Interest exploration consulting:
Professional career consultants provide counseling services, through small activities and in-depth interviews and other forms to help learners explore more of their interests.
Career story sharing:
We will invite some of the more interested learners to share their work experience and, most importantly, what he has learned about the workplace as a long-term practitioner.
Future career research report:
We will be working with a number of organizations to interpret the report’s information on future career needs so that learners can explore their interests in the future.
We expect the learner to have a high level of systems perspective and empathy in addition to his or her own quality development. During the past two years of study and living, MSA learners have explored dozens of related experiences that serve society, including: voluntering at disease camps, museum, remote villages, marine waste data collection centers.
The aspiration development center supports learners to initiate and form clubs based on their own interests. Through the interaction with other learners, we encourage learners to develop their abilities in teamwork and social awareness through mutual growth.
MSA now has dozens of clubs: Artemis Frisbee, Spartan Sports, Maker Space, Acappella, Filmy Movie studio, Basketball Club, Blank Space theater, etc.
