SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Korean education officials have approved plans for a University of Utah campus that’s slated to open in September.

The Korean Ministry of Education announced Monday that it was giving the green light for the campus in Incheon, which will offer undergraduate degrees in social work, communication and psychology and a graduate degree in public health.

University officials hope to enroll 2,000 students there within six years. Utah state dollars won’t be used for the project.

The University of Utah was one of four U.S. and European universities invited by the Korean government in 2008 to open shop in Incheon. The area is home to an international airport and a sea port.

Other schools participating include Belgium’s Ghent University, George Mason University and the State University of New York, Stony Brook.
