Description

Capstone Experience Course

Students in this course pursue independent research and produce a research project, normally a research essay, under the supervision of a teacher in Korean Studies. This course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore in depth a topic of interest to them in relation to Korean society and culture. Students are required to obtain their supervisor’s approval for the topic. Schedule of individual meetings with the supervisor on the first week of the semester, and contact hours are minimal because students spend much of their time on individual project. Students will be encouraged to engage with original texts written in Korean, although the class will be conducted in English and assignments should be written in English.
