International Affairs at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) provides opportunities for students to study all over the world. This capstone is a program proposal for Japanese Visual Culture in Context, a new summer faculty-led program in Japan. This proposal will help ensure that the program meets the standards of both International Affairs and UNL while working towards internationalizing the curriculum.

While International Affairs offers nearly 30 summer faculty-led programs, Japanese Visual Culture in Context is one of only seven programs offered in Asia and is the only summer faculty-led program in Japan. Additionally, the program offers perspectives from faculty leaders in two different departments, the Art and Art History Department and the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.

International education design elements were applied to this International Education Design and Delivery Course-Linked Capstone. Theoretical foundations of undergraduate level students were incorporated into the design process. A needs assessment provided student survey results, which helped integrate students’ opinions, interests, and concerns into the program.
