Clayton State University senior Communications and Media Studies major Gantt Thomas reports on the recently-concluded Study Abroad trip to Daejeon, South Korea.
A group of Clayton State University students visited Daejeon Health Sciences College for the 2015 South Korea Study Abroad program.
The Clayton State students were from the University's Communication and Media Studies and Music departments. The trip was conducted under the leadership of Professor Jonathan Harris and the administration at Daejeon HSC. Through the abroad trip, the students studied a short course about Korean cinema and its growth as a media product in the relatively young nation.
Upon arriving in Daejeon, Korea, the students were given video cameras on which they were instructed to document their trip through a series of video blogs and footage of the various historical sites visited. In addition, the students were paired with groups of production students from the host college to shoot footage to be used in a documentary produced by Professor Hee Jun Lee of Daejeon HSC.
The Clayton State students were also introduced to students from Daejeon who will be attending Clayton State in the summer and fall of 2015. Clayton State has had an MOU, originally involving the Clayton State School of Nursing, with Daejeon HSC since March 2013.
