GC summer program is the international summer program initiated by collaboration on global engagement of KHU and UPenn at 2006. It’s themed summer program and all courses are related to Humanity, Civilization and Global Governance. It’s 4-week program at July. First three week will be academic weeks with courses and the last week will be Korean Culture week with various programs including meeting Korean Pop stars. This year, we will have world-renowned scholars like, Slavoj Zizek of University of Ljubljana, Mary Tucker of Yale University, and John Ikenberry of Princeton University.
By participating GC summer program, students not only have a chance to meet world-renowned scholars but also experience Korean culture. There will be 21 courses offered this year with 1~3 credit hours. Please refer to attached brochure for the course list.
This year, there are new courses added: Taekwondo course, Cosmic humanity course, North Korean politics course and Korean studies courses. Students may enjoy variety of course selection.
For partner institutions, we offer special rate for participants and it will be lowered next year to be USD 1,000/student for participating the program and many of partners including new partners use this program as a stepping stone letting students get to know about KHU and Korea for a short time(one month). I’ve seen many students coming back for semester-long exchange students after experiencing GC summer program first.
Here are tuition & fees for GC summer program:
|Required||General Applicant(Tuition)||1-4 credits
|Partner University Applicant(Tuition)||USD 1,000|
|Optional||Dormitory(Double)||KRW 405,000/person(approx. USD 400)|
|Korean Culture Week||KRW 200,000/person(approx. USD 200)|
Please note that the insurance is required for each participating student and if they have their own policy valid overseas during the program period, they do not need to purchase one provided by KHU. They just need to submit a copy of their policy. I’ll send details of policy coverage requirement to registered students later.
Also, I would like to offer free-Korean Culture week participation to UGM students up to 15 students. Since Registration & Student Activity Fee is included in tuition for fee-paying students, it makes total fees USD 1,400 including Korean culture week.
