Gwangju Courses - 2019 Fall

Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.

Areas of Study Available at Chonnam National University

USAC’s partnership with Chonnam National University (CNU) provides you with an array of academic offerings taught in English. Students who already have an advanced level of Korean language also may enroll in courses taught in Korean. You are required to take a minimum of 12 US credits; a typical course load is 12-15 US credits. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites, which are determined by CNU. CNU is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea.
