Program Overview New Program Overview
This policy workshop course provides a unique opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation for public administration and management 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.

These include: transportation, environment, recreation, tourism, economic development, urban planning and design, and others. Students will marvel at the use of technology and citizen participation in the policy development process and in policy and program implementation. Students will return to the U.S. with a newfound appreciation for efficient and effective administration that they can use as a standard against which to compare U.S. municipal administration.
