ABSTRACT

This research is a case study of a curricular reform implemented at a graduate school of T&I in Seoul. Based on an overarching goal to empower T&I professionals to pivot into various emerging realms of the local language services market, the graduate school implemented an overall curricular reform in the face of the 4th Industrial Revolution. The research gives a thick descriptive account of the overall context and details of the new curriculum, including the introduction of new courses, hiring of professionals in the emerging realms of language services and the construction of new infrastructures to support the new curriculum. Finally, the research reflects on the past 3 years of new curricular design and its implementation to draw implications for the next phase of curricular reform in preparation for the future changes in the T&I landscape.
