South Korea Initiative, Student Exchange Program
The College of Education is pleased to announce a 2016 summer graduate study abroad program in Korea. Auburn graduate students will enroll in COUN 7970 (Special Topics: Global Studies in Counseling and Research) and will attend a five-hour seminar each day for four consecutive days at Korea University in Seoul, Korea. These classes will be attended by both Auburn graduate students and by Korean graduate students. Additionally, for each of the four days there will be opportunity to work in small groups with the Korean students. This program will enable graduate students to expand their international perspectives on critical issues in counseling and education and to enhance cross-cultural research competencies in a graduate course (3 credit hours).
Educational experiences provided in the program will include seminars, lectures, research, field experiences, and guided educational and cultural tours. The course will involve (1) participation in eight two-hour pre-departure research meetings during the 2016 Spring semester; (2) class attendance and satisfactory completion of class assignments; (3) active involvement in post-trip research meetings which are designed to lead to completion of cross-cultural research manuscripts; and (4) completion of pre- & post- assessments for program evaluation . Dr. Suhyun Suh in the Department of Special Education, Rehabilitation, & Counseling will direct the program. The hosting university for this program is Korea University (http://www.korea.edu/), one of Korea’s most prestigious universities. Dr. Sang Min Lee at Korea University will serve as the primary instructor for classes taught on KU’s campus.
A maximum of six participants will be selected. Students who are interested in conducting cross- cultural research are encouraged to apply. Please send further inquiries to Dr. Suh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
