The Power of Community

We thrive together.

At Mason Korea, we believe learning is social as well as individual. That great achievements usually come with the support of others. And that strong communities foster our students’ success while preparing them for the collaboration with co-workers expected in the modern workplace. This belief in community pays off: 95% of Mason Korea students report feeling a sense of belonging at Mason.

The engagement that characterizes Mason students in their academic pursuits likewise characterizes their relationship to the Mason community. Mason Korea students are empowered to use and develop their talents to enrich the community that also sustains them. They build new student organizations. They take leadership roles in student council and other student organizations. They express their opinion about how to improve campus at townhalls and other venues. If you have an idea for a way to serve the Mason Korea community, we will help you realize it.

Mason Korea faculty and staff are part of that supportive community as well. In addition to a low student to faculty ratio of 12:1, students at Mason Korea enjoy close individual relationships with their instructors, who provide additional, one-on-one discussion of academic subjects, help with academic challenges, and mentorship on academic and career opportunities.  Mason Korea staff are equally available to support students throughout their academic careers. One of the most frequent comments from students about Mason is that it is a “welcoming” place. We look forward to welcoming you to this community.
