Abstract

The purposes of this thesis are to answer these following questions : 1) What are the settlement patterns of Korean immigrants in the Houston area? 2) What are the general patterns of cultural, social, and labor- market adaptations of Korean immigrants in the Houston area? 3) How do their degrees of adaptation relate to their life satisfactions and ethnic attachment? The findings indicate a mode of Korean immigrants' adaptation that is generally adhesive; that is, immigrants are Americanized culturally, socially, and occupationally, but to a limited extent and such Americanization does not replace or weaken any significant aspect of Korean traditional culture and social networks.
