Inspiring a bold new chapter
The largest initiative in our 50 year history, we are transforming the BCIT campus into a dynamic new learning environment where solutions to our most urgent challenges are born, tested and readied for the world.
Sean Park has always wanted to become a journalist. Growing up in South Korea, he fondly recalls watching the evening news every night and being captivated by the reporters’ immersive storytelling. After completing his mandatory military service, he took a part-time job at a music video production company where he filmed K-pop and other musical acts.
During a sit-down with his then manager, Sean told her about his passion for journalism, and she suggested he look into a post-secondary in Canada called BCIT.
“She recommended BCIT for its practical approach to learning, as it was a place where students could apply theories directly to practice as part of their coursework,” explains Sean. “That’s how I ended up at BCIT.”
