Investigating North Korea
About the Course:
This course aims to educate students about North Korea, the mysterious Hermit Kingdom that keeps its secrets tucked away in the northeast pocket of Asia. We will cover nearly all aspects of the nation known today (through leaked information and testimonies of defectors), including its short history, military stance, the infamous Kim clan, and current human rights' issues. By the end of the course, students will have a strong knowledge of how the nation functions politically and economically, how North Korea views the rest of the world, and what it is like to live as a citizen of the nation.
This class is designed to increase awareness and quench curiosity for those who have little to no prior knowledge about North Korea. If you have taken a DeCal focused on North Korea in previous semesters, then this DeCal may be review for you and priority may be given to those who are new to the subject. Reviewing the Semester Timeline in the syllabus to decide if the planned material is foreign or already familiar to you will help you decide whether or not to join this class.
How to Enroll:
· Attend the first day of class with a pen/pencil and a sheet of paper to be handed in
· CCNs will be passed out during the first class if there are enough spots; in the event that there are more students than spots in the class, a questionnaire & survey will be passed out to be completed in class; the facilitator will review the responses and email out CCNs within 2 days to selected students
