Course Offerings in South Korea
Students will earn 3 credit hours. The program will satisfy the Business Ethics (BUS 455) common professional component for all B.B.A. majors, or will count as an elective in International Business.

Assignments will include orientation sessions before, field trips during, and a reflection paper after.
Students will visit manufacturing facilities, corporate headquarters and government organizations. Tentatively scheduled destinations include LG Chem Plant, Hyundai Motors Studio, the Korea Independent Commission Against Corruption, Incheon Port, and the demilitarized zone (DMZ). Other possibilities include: Samsung Electronics, SK Telecom, Kia, and Vizio.
Mission Work Opportunity
This year we are offering a pre-trip extension to serve as a counselor for a new Korean Christian Camp on Sukmodo Island (July 30-Aug 3). The four-day camp will offer an English immersion experience in a Christian environment for Korean youth ages 10-17. Selection of the camp counselors is separate from the study abroad program. You will need to complete the “Pre-trip Mission Work” section of the application and must be interviewed by the Camp Director Greg Tidwell. He will be on the FHU campus to conduct interviews during lectureship week (Feb. 2-7). You may contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
