Study Abroad in South Korea

CUNY Brooklyn College’s Media Production and Cultural Studies in South Korea will provide students the opportunity to work in a great range of production techniques and tools of the medium, including, electronic media production theory, shooting on-location, computers, graphics, audio, and post-production. Studying abroad in Korea will give students a new canvas to produce their films in a Korean setting. In addition, students will have the opportunity to take a 3-day side trip to Tokyo. Students will not only explore the diversity of South Korea but also be able to document and create a story of their experience.

Due to the travel restrictions of COVID-19, the 2020 Study Abroad in South Korea trip has been canceled. Follow us on our social media platforms to stay up to date with the latest news and photos from the program!
