Mason Korea faculty are researchers as well as teachers. We believe that our instructors' active research agendas enrich their teaching, by keeping their course content at the cutting edge of their fields, and by introducing students to the practices of scholarship. Some of our students will work alongside faculty researchers.
While Mason Korea faculty have diverse scholarly interests, we particularly focus in areas of interest related to Korea, Asia, and globalization. We welcome partners from Mason US as well as Korean universities in these endeavors.
CSPS branch at Mason Korea Campus focus on: setting a model for research collaboration and academic exchange with the main campus; creating a research hub connecting the US and Asia and a policy exchange platform between Washington and Seoul; supporting CSPS, the Schar School Faculty, and researchers by connecting to research infrastructure, policy field, and government in Korea; holding joint events between the two campuses; and building a reputable university specialized program and vibrant research environment.
