Se Kyung Ock was born in Seoul, South Korea, and he came to University of Minnesota as an international student. With academic interests ranging from continental philosophy to psychoanalysis to philosophy of language, Se Kyung chose to major in art history because he was fascinated by art's capacity to reflect, criticize and change a social structure. Se Kyung hopes to study critical theory in depth, and it is his dream to make a world without inequality in access to knowledge as a public educator.
