The MiM program is a 45 credit-hour course of study consisting of eight 3-credit core courses, one 3-credit seminar, a 3-credit capstone course, and 15 credits of elective courses. Southern Oregon University will teach eight core courses in Guanajuato and UG will present two core courses (Practical Research and Capstone/Thesis), and five elective courses over the duration of the program. Each course lasts approximately 10 weeks following the SOU academic calendar and will generally consist of three parts: pre-session assignments to be completed prior to the class sessions, four class sessions, and final projects to be completed after the last class session. Class sessions are held on Friday evening and all day Saturday on two consecutive weekends. Instructors will use Moodle, an online instructional tool, to facilitate communication during all three phases of the course. The syllabus for each course will detail specific requirements for assignments and final projects.
