Greetings from Hallym University!
Following on from the success of the January 2021 Korean Studies Taster Program Hallym will offer its second Korean Studies Taster Program Tuesday 25th to Thursday 27th January, 2022 .
Introducing Hallym University Second Online Korean Studies Taster Program
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 partners and our European, Asian and Australasian partners.

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: Korean New Year Holiday (Seollal) History & Tradition
Professor Frey: Korean Etiquette and International Business in Korea
Professor Lee: Social Issues in Modern Korean Society
