Technology Studies

The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.

The incorporation of technology into modern society has often been the cause of political and philosophical debate. The main concern is whether technology truly helps or harms humanity. Some argue that overuse of technology is harmful to the environment, while others believe it is a necessary facet of human development.

South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign country located in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. The name "Korea" is derived from Goryeo, a dynasty which ruled in the Middle Ages. South Korea is now a liberal democracy and an economic powerhouse. The most prestigious comprehensive universities are Seoul National University, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Yonsei University and Korea University.
