Description of program This course provides a unique opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation for public administration and public policy in an international context. Seoul, Korea is a thriving metropolitan area competing on an international scale and dealing with the pressures of rapid democratization and growth during the post-war period. Students will engage the policy formulation and change literatures to evaluate Korean municipal government’s process, procedures, and policy decisions as they pertain to a series of functional policy problems. These include: transportation, environment, recreation, tourism, economic development, urban planning and design, and others.
