Description

Capstone Experience Course


This is a small-group research seminar course and also a capstone experience for students in their final year. This course explores aspects of Korean history, film, literature, culture and society at an advanced level. The specific area of study may vary from year to year depending on students’ background, interests and the expertise of the instructor. Students will have topic-focused workshops, intensive group meetings, and also pursue a small research 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.
