Program Description:

Mason Korea

Incheon, Songdo, South Korea

Mason Korea offer the same curriculum and courses as Mason’s US campuses, while students enjoy living in one of the world’s most intriguing and vibrant places, a country where an ancient and complex past meets the most modern of globalized cultures. Easy to live in and efficient, Korea is also an economic miracle and the hub of some of the most popular international music and television. The campus in Songdo is located just 45 minutes from Seoul, and 30 minutes from Incheon International Airport, from where one can find inexpensive flights to locations across Asia. Students at Mason Korea enjoy the smaller size of the Mason Korea campus—but still with plenty of Mason spirit—which means that Mason Korea students receive individual attention and the experience of a close-knit, international community of students and teachers. They also enjoy extra- and co-curricular experiences that take advantage of our Korean location. Mason Korea might take an anthropology class on K-pop or a conflict resolution class on the North-South Korean conflict, travel to the DMZ (the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea) or explore Seoul’s royal palaces.  They learn about Korean life and culture while immersing themselves in it.
