Program Description:
Study Abroad in Busan - South Korea
(The South Korea Summer 2020 program is currently not accepting applications.)
About the program 
There are many students from all over the world at Valdosta State University. More Korean students come every every semester than from any other county, resulting in more Koreans at Valdosta. However, Korean in not listed in our foreign language courses, and Korea is not part of our international programs including summer study abroad programs. Creating a new summer study abroad program in Korea would be a practical way to provide our students an opportunity to discover a new culture and increase student participation in expanded experiential opportunities.

Overall, the classes will be hosted at the local university in South Korea and taught in a combination of Korean and English, with a focus on speaking, reading, and listening skills. Prior knowledge of Korean is not required. The culture classes and excursions will provide students with opportunities to experience the Korean arts and culture in the area surrounding the university.
