Frederick Carriere teaches seminars on contemporary foreign policy and Track II diplomacy related to Korea. Currently, he also is a consulting professor at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. All of Carriere's professional experience is Korea-related, including a fifteen-year career (1994-2009) as the executive vice president of The Korea Society in New York City. Prior to assuming that position, Carriere lived in Korea for a period of over twenty years (1969-1993). During most of those years he was employed by the Korea Fulbright Commission (Korean-American Educational Commission), initially as its educational counseling officer (1979-83) and later as its executive director (1984-1993). In the latter role, Carriere was also responsible for all the Korea-based programs of the East West Center, the Humphrey Fellowship Program and the Educational Testing Service. He also was president of the Royal Asiatic Society–Korea Branch for two years (1989-91) and a councilor for over a decade. Other relevant professional activities include service as an instructor in the overseas division of the University of Maryland (1980-1982) and a translator at the Korean National Commission for UNESCO (1977-1980).
