USC Center for Active Learning in International Studies: Teaching East Asia Program (TEAP)
The Teaching East Asia Program was established in 2003 as an outreach service component of the Explore East Asia Program funded by the Freeman Foundation. Explore East Asia scholarships were awarded to USC undergraduates who had not yet taken college-level coursework in East Asian language or area studies, but who wanted to explore the region through an innovative "starter program." Each year of the program, scholarship recipients took an intensive language course during the summer and during the academic year they enrolled in at least one course in either language or area studies. In the spring, Explore East Asia scholars traveled to China, Japan, or Korea with USC faculty for a four-week credited course. Upon returning, East Asia Scholars fulfilled their scholarship requirements by visiting a local high school and making presentations about their studies and experiences to students.
