Description

Korean Studies Electives


This Korean Studies elective course offers students an internship learning experience by allowing them to take their classroom knowledge into the community. Students will have an opportunity for experiential learning, earn credits towards their degree, and engage in a rich experience by working in an organization or company that has a real impact on society. The internship experience draws on coursework offered by the Korean Studies programme and allows students to work in Korean companies, or in companies which have a strong connection to Korea and demonstrates the use of Korean in the community. Internship duration must be at least three weeks full time or comprise a minimum of 120 hours part-time. Staffing resources and operations mechanisms allowing, students will be assessed by the organisation contact throughout the duration of the internship and will also, if possible, receive a letter of reference from the organisation at the end of the internship. A written report (800-1,000 words) with a description, critical assessment of and reflection on the internship experience will be assessed by the course supervisor at HKU. Students are asked to make their own internship arrangements with an organisation of their choice. They are asked to do this in liaison with a relevant teacher at the Korean Studies Programme of HKU.
