Student‐Centered Learning — Tomorrow's Education Today
Today’s students need more than a traditional education to be fully prepared for a constantly‐changing and global society. That’s why Midland University offers a hybrid curriculum — combining traditional and applied learning techniques while challenging students to be co-creators of their own learning experiences.
An education at Midland enables graduates to apply their knowledge, become better problem solvers and adapt to change, making them more marketable and better equipped to live a successful and purposeful life.
We believe in challenging our students to be co-creators of their personal learning experiences by requiring them to actively participate in the development and delivery of coursework.
Our one-of-a-kind curriculum offers:
- Compressed 30-hour majors, encouraging dual major degrees in liberal arts and business.
- Internship and service learning opportunities for hands-on learning experience.
- An Internet/technologies integration course created by each student to promote leadership and enhance research and problem-solving abilities.
- Courses condensed into 12 weeks of disciplinary learning and two weeks of interdisciplinary, global or applied learning for a more well-rounded experience.
- Participation in online, shared book blogging exchanges where students work together to explore interdisciplinary and global themes.
Through this approach, our students gain more than knowledge; they learn how to apply their knowledge, becoming better problem solvers and critical thinkers.
They’re guided to move from dependent to independent learners, making them better able to adapt in an ever-changing world. And they earn well-rounded degrees, making them more marketable in the workforce.
Because we are a small school, our students get the personal attention and guidance from their first day as needed to help them succeed.
Our faculty is comprised of respected experts who are committed to providing the best learning experience possible for students. They believe in being more than teachers—they are dedicated mentors who offer faith-inspired and supported learning.
Finally, we believe helping our students understand that being a part of a global society is vital to becoming better citizens of the world.
As a university with deep Lutheran roots, we are dedicated to supporting the spiritual development of our students and hold strong to our mission to “inspire students to learn and lead in the world with purpose.”
