Program Focus

Assisting with educational goals and social adjustment of young North Korean refugees and migrant children of various ethnic and national backgrounds in South Korea.

Curricular Connections: While all students are welcome to apply, this program may be of particular interest to students studying migration and human rights issues and/or the histories and contemporary societies of Asia broadly defined. While there are no strict language requirements and we aim to diversify our finalist selections, students with competency in Korean and Chinese language are especially encouraged to apply. Students interested in careers in public policy, government, law, human rights, social services, academia, medicine, and global health would especially benefit from this program. All students selected as finalists for DukeEngage-Korea 2019 are required to take a course on Korean language, Korean culture or migration/refugees/human rights in Asia before departure.
