DCLCP Project GO Korea Programs

We are offering a fully funded two-week domestic program and an eight-week study abroad program.

  • Two-week Domestic Program – Preparation Course at the University of Montana

  • Our two-week domestic course is an intensive 60 hour course for learning conversational Korean language, culture and regional studies. It is designed for students who are preparing to travel to South Korea or students who want to enhance their Korean language skills. The program will be offered at our Palmer Street Learning Complex in beautiful Missoula, MT. Participants who successfully finish this program will receive 2 credits.
  • Eight-week Study Abroad Program – 3-week & 5-week Course

  • Eight-week study abroad opportunity will be at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. Participants who are selected for this eight-week program are encouraged to attend the two-week preparation course. Our eight-week study abroad program in Seoul is broken into two parts, both required for participating students. The first section will be three weeks in which you will you not only begin your language studies but also have an opportunity to meet individuals from the South Korean ROTC program. This interaction will give you the chance to talk one-on-one with members of an allied nation’s ROTC program and begin building professional military relationships with Soldiers from another country. The dates for this part will be June 1 through June 24, 2014. Following these first three weeks, there will be a field trip exploring South Korea from June 24 to June 26, 2014. The second part will be five weeks of Korean language and culture courses taught at Yonsei University. During this time you will be on campus and interacting with many other students from around the world looking to enhance their own Korean understanding. The dates for this part will be June 26 through August 2, 2014
