About the Course:

This DeCal will focus on educating students about political, economic, and social aspects of North Korea and addressing the question: why does understanding this complex political phenomena matter.  The method of instruction is mainly lecture, in-class discussion and collaborative inquiry.  Generally throughout the course, the first half of the class will be inclined to lecture-style in order to ensure students have a basic understanding of the material being discussed, and second-half will be more inclined to group discussions.

Throughout the course, we will discuss: the history of the divided peninsula, North Korea’s current domestic and international political situation, human right issues, wide use of state media, livelihood within the state, government regime, and life before, during, and after defecting North Korea.

We want our students to better comprehend the social, political, historical, and economic sides of the story behind the separation of North and South Korea. Students will understand different causes and effects of this political phenomena and associated issues of human rights, and be able to formulate their own opinions on the future of this aspect.

How to Enroll:

CCNs for the course will be distributed on the first day of the class.
