All TnCIS programs are academic in nature and course work that takes advantage of the program location will be the central focus. Programs offered by TnCIS through any member institution are in keeping with SACSCOC policies for each respective institution where compliance is monitored at the institutional level. TnCIS program courses are for credit only.
In South Korea, students will enroll in ONE course. For more information about each of these courses, including pre-requisites and syllabi, use the button provided below.
South Korea 2018 will provide students the opportunity to take General Biology, Composition II, Introduction to Film Studies, and Introduction to Philosophy. With such a diverse range of courses offered, all students will experience a broad spectrum of Korean culture through museums, temples, natural wonders, electrifying cities, and a culinary experience Anthony Bourdain describes as “delicious and exciting; what the cool kids want.” The program is designed to give students an in-depth look at three uniquely different cities, each with their own natural attractions, cultures, foods, and regional accents. While all excursions are planned with students’ varying interests, some experiences will be unique to Biology, literature, film, and modern/historic culture and religion.
Please Note: Prospective TnCIS students should be aware that there will be a great deal of walking throughout the Korea program, and that students should have the ability to potentially walk several miles each day on varying surfaces through both cities and rugged terrain.
Excursions May Include
Excursions may include the DMZ (demilitarized zone), Seoul Tower, the Korean National Theatre, Namsangoi Hanok Village, various temples, shrines and palaces, SM Town (home of K-pop), Seongeup Folk Village, Tea Museum, Arts Park, Dragonhead Shore, hands-on arts and crafts centers, Seoul Animation Center, and natural terrain from coastal sea towns to mountainous basins to underground lava caves.
Classes will be held four days per week for three hours each day in the mornings followed by subject-specific assignments to be completed in the afternoons. Classes may be held in local cafes, parks, or available spaces at each accommodation. Class meeting spaces will be determined by each instructor to accommodate the needs of each class.
