Greetings from Hallym University!
With an established presence in South East Asia and with expanding global influence, South Korea has become an attractive Study Abroad option for thousands of international students every year.
COVID-19 has caused a great deal of disruption to world markets and peoples way of life. It has also forced many universities to re-evaluate how they educate. Hallym University, with its focus on internationalization and student centered-learning continues to adapt and develop its curriculums' to give its students' the best possible start to their careers.

The Korean Studies Online Taster Program has been designed to appeal to a range of students, with no prerequisite knowledge of Korea or Korean Studies required. The course will be conducted 100% in English by some of our experienced Korean Studies Professors (detailed below).
The three-day course is spread over 90 minutes per day at a time which is most convenient for each time zone. Therefore, the course will run twice per day (Korean morning time) and (Korean early evening) to cater for our North/Central and South American partner students and our European, Asian and Australasian partner students.

How can students apply the knowledge of your course to their future career?
I teach' Encounters with Korea' during the regular semester. During our 'taster' class we will cover key information related to living in Korea, allowing you the student to better understand what it is like to live and study in Korea. By the end of the class you will be able to apply this knowledge to 'real-life' situations, which should allow you to critically analyze and evaluate the way people think and behave in given situations' when living, studying and working in Korea.
What kind of methodology will you use during the course? Will it be more theoretical or more practical?
We have chosen a very hands-on and interactive approach. Students will take part in live group work, discussions and Problem-Based Learning (PBL), in which students will learn about subjects through solving 'open-ended' problems found within distributed literature.
What skills will I have acquired after the course?
Your new skill set will allow you to extract key information and analyze and evaluate it, allowing you to further develop critical thinking skills and apply knowledge to 'real life' business and work environments.
What topics will be covered during the three-day course?
Professor Ray: Adapting to Korea & Cross Cultural Communication
Professor Frey: Fundamental Issues for International Business in Korea
Professor Lee: Social Issues in Modern Korean Society
