“MiraeRo!” Offers Information Sessions for Korean-speaking Adults
Teaneck, NJ (March 10, 2008) – “MiraeRo!,” Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Korean Studies Program, is holding two information sessions for Korean-speaking adults who want to earn an Associate in Arts degree.
The sessions will be held in the lobby of Dickinson Hall, located on the Hackensack side of FDU’s Metropolitan campus, from 6-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, and from 10 a.m.–1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 5. Prospective students who come to the information sessions can meet with advisors, register for the program and ask additional questions.
Recognizing the fact that New Jersey ranks among the top three states in Korean residents, many of which have limited or no English language skills, FDU launched “MiraeRo!” in January 2008 to gradually transition students from progressive English and Korean to all-English classes during a three year course of study.
During the first two years of coursework, the program combines intensive English language training with college-level course work taught in Korean and English. In year three, all courses are conducted in English.
The program combines quality language training with the professional skills learned through college-level study: the ability to communicate effectively, think critically and work as a member of a team. At completion of the program, the university is offering the ability to transfer credits into a traditional baccalaureate program at Fairleigh Dickinson or another accredited college or university.
Tuition for the 60-credit program is $1,233 per three-credit course, which includes ESL tuition. Classes in both the part and full-time formats will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, plus Saturdays. The program offers start dates during Summer I (April-June) Summer II (June-September) and Fall (September-December) semesters.
The program also includes opportunities for advance standing, transfer credits, transcript evaluation and to audit classes. Students transferring from another university and international students also have the option to study on F-1 Visa Status, if qualified.
The information sessions will be held in the lobby of Dickinson Hall, which is located on the Hackensack side of FDU’s Metropolitan campus.
