Korean and Asia Studies - Seoul, Korea

The International Summer Session (ISS) at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), offered continuously for eleven years since its establishment in 2003, provides a unique opportunity to all those who want to deepen their understanding of Korean and East Asian societies and the sources of their current trends. International students may increase their Korean language proficiency through ISS language classes, and domestic Korean students have the opportunity to enhance their English language proficiency by studying in an international environment where all courses are taught in English.

One of the unique features of the HUFS ISS program is that both international and domestic Korean students study side-by-side in the same classrooms on a daily basis, sharing in project work, extra-curricular and free-time activities. ISS international students come from a variety of countries, either as independent students or as exchange students from partner universities in Sweden, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Russia, Kazakhstan, China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Italy, Jordan, India, Mexico, the U.S., Canada, and Australia. This co-mingling of students of many national origins enriches the learning environment for all.

ISS provides students with a carefully planned curriculum and the courses are taught by some of the most prominent scholars in the field of Korean and Asian Studies, many of whom are invited from prestigious foreign universities to teach for the summer session. The faculty and students together create a cosmopolitan atmosphere which is conducive to an in-depth understanding of Korean and Asian societies.

Courses are offered in the areas of Korean history, performing arts, culture, economy and business, Asian politics, contemporary society and international relations, as well as language. The summer session is open to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to independent scholars interested in  the field of Korean and Asian Studies.
