The University of Utah Asia Campus announced the addition of four new degree programs and its plans to recruit new students. The university will start offering Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film and Media Studies and Bachelor of Science in Urban Ecology in Spring 2017, and Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics and a Global Juris Doctorate in Fall 2017.

The University of Utah President David W. Pershing said, “Playing a key role in Korea’s plans for innovation in education, business and smart city development is consistent with the University of Utah’s vision to meet critical global needs through knowledge generation, innovative teaching and community engagement. With these four new majors the U is expanding our offerings to meet the needs of our students here in Asia.”

Established in September 2014, the goal of the UAC is to fully prepare students with the knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in their chosen careers through critical thinking skills with an emphasis in global citizenship. With the same program requirements as the main campus in Salt Lake City, the UAC offers a truly American university experience in a global setting with all classes taught in English by University of Utah professors. Students applying to the UAC meet the same admission standards as the main campus, spend one year in Salt Lake City  and receive a University of Utah degree upon graduation.

Application for spring 2017 admissions to the UAC is now underway until January 16, 2017. More information on the Asia Campus, including how to apply can be found at
