Course Descriptions

Practical English Skills: 1 credit, lower division level
The goal of this course is to immerse the student in American culture and Mohegan Sun's company culture. It presents a diverse set of cultural and professional situations in America and helps to prepare students to study at an American university after the conclusion of the program, if they choose. Classroom instruction is accomplished through a combination of lecture, discussion, class assignments including journals, and a capstone project. In addition to classroom hours, students also rotate through various departments (e.g., casino, food service, accounting) to observe typical Mohegan Sun casino operations.
