BTAA Korean Studies e-School

The Ohio State University's Institute for Korean Studies is a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) Korean Studies e-School consortium. As part of an effort to build a system of shared courses with Korean content among Big Ten schools, the Big Ten Academic Alliance, with funding from the Korea Foundation and coordination from the University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies, offers a series of area studies courses on a variety of Korean topics. The structure of the BTAA e-School is based on the key notion that each course is taught as a cluster composed of a host campus, where the course is being physically taught, and home campus(es) where the classroom exists virtually. The East Asian Studies Center and Institute for Korean Studies coordinate and support the offering of these courses at The Ohio State University.
