“MiraeRo!” Offers Korean-speaking Adults an Opportunity to Earn Associates Degree
Teaneck, NJ (November 20, 2007) – Beginning in January, Korean-speaking adults will have the opportunity to earn an Associate in Arts degree at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus through its new Gateway to the Future program, “MiraeRo!”
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 has designed “MiraeRo!” 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 the Spring (Jan. 14, 2008 – March), 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.
