BOSP Announces New Program in North Korea

The Bing Overseas Study Program (BOSP) at Stanford is pleased to announce its new program in Pyongyang, North Korea.   Starting in Fall 2011-2012, Stanford undergraduates will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the diverse and stimulating cultural activities of the “Hermit Kingdom” while engaging in community based research on nuclear warfare and warships.

When asked about the prospect of studying in North Korea, sophomore Alex exclaimed, “I would definitely [love] studying abroad there! What a [fantastic] way to [make progress in addressing issues of denuclearization and international disputes].”

“We are a nuclear superpower!” said Kim Jong Il in a press release last week.

When asked how long prospective students will stay in North Korea starting in the fall, President Hennessy responded “indefinitely.”
