Studies in Seoul

A team from the University of Delaware School of Public Policy and Administration spent a mid-October week in Seoul, South Korea, learning firsthand about the challenges and successes of building and managing that city of 10 million people.

Nancy Brickhouse, deputy provost, and James Richards, vice provost for graduate and professional education, will lead the meetings. 

Among the topics to be addressed will be 

• professional master’s level and post-baccalaureate degree programs that are most appropriate for online delivery; 

• online classes and certificate programs that would especially benefit UD’s growing global audiences;

• building international collaborations to bring students from abroad to the UD campus during winter and summer sessions; and

• expanding opportunities for UD faculty to teach overseas and for UD students to take courses at campuses overseas. 

In addition, a summary of the review of potential vendors for the campus-wide delivery of online courses will be presented.
