Gwangju Courses – 2021 Fall

If you have questions about the academics or courses available on this program, locate the Program Advisor to schedule an advising appointment or email them your questions directly.

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.
