Mason Undergraduate Student Conference in Korean Studies (MUSCKS)
We initiated the Mason Undergraduate Student Conference in Korean Studies (MUSCKS) on October 9, Hangul Day in 2020 to commemorate the proclamation of the alphabet of the Korean language in 1,443 by King Sejong the Great.
The conference aims to offer an opportunity for Mason undergraduate students to develop their interest in Korean language and culture into academic research. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Korean studies, we welcome students’ paper presentations on a variety of topics related to Korean language and culture. Students will have options to present in either English or Korean at the conference. All students enrolled in Korean classes at Mason are encouraged to further develop their cultural presentations or term papers into conference presentations. The most outstanding student papers will be awarded at the conference each year.
