Gwangju Courses – 2020 Summer

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. Each summer, CNU invites qualified professors from the US to teach specialized courses alongside their local faculty. This is a unique opportunity to learn from both US and Korean professors. Because of this, course offerings will vary each summer. You are required to take a minimum of 3 US credits; a typical course load is 3-6 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.
