Korean Opportunities at Taylor University
The King Sejong Institute from Seoul, South Korea, now has an Indiana campus at Taylor University! This is only the second campus, and only Christian campus, established in the midwestern United States.
Due to a partnership between Taylor University and the King Sejong Institute Foundation, Taylor students have unique chances to experience Korean culture and can benefit from global academic and career-boosting opportunities. This partnership will allow Taylor students to closely study and celebrate Korean customs and pop culture, language, and history.
Bachelor of Arts students can fulfill their University language requirement by taking two years of Korean language. Taylor students can also complete a several liberal arts requirements through Korean cultural classes and history classes.
Students studying Korean courses could have the opportunity to study abroad at Handong Global University or participate in internships at companies, like Samsung, LG, Hyundai, Kia, etc., in South Korea—one of the leading countries in technology and engineering. South Korea is also the #1 Christian country in Asia and one of the top locations for missionaries—opening a variety of opportunities to Christian Ministries, Youth Ministry, Social Work, and Psychology majors. Taylor students could even teach English, be an exchange student, or take an academic language trip to South Korea during the summer.
Even if you don’t travel to South Korea, all Taylor students can participate in Korean cultural festivals and activities each semester. You can eat Korean food, learn cultural dances, listen to K-Pop music, and hear about the country’s Hallyu (Korea Wave of Korean Pop Culture).
Talk to Dr. Chin Chang about these opportunities and potential scholarships for abroad trips.
