SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Classes are now in session at a new University of Utah campus located in South Korea.

KUTV-TV reports University of Utah President David Pershing attended a ceremony Monday celebrating the new site at the Incheon Global Campus in Songdo.

The campus offers 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 was one of four U.S. and European schools invited by the Korean government in 2008 to open at 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.
