Seoul Courses - 2019-20 Yonsei Yearlong

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.

Academics

USAC’s partnership with Yonsei University provides you with an array of academic offerings taught in English. Students who already have an advanced level of Korean language may also enroll in courses taught in Korean. You are required to take a minimum of 12 credits; a typical course load is 12-15 credits. Course offerings are too numerous to be listed here, but areas of study believed to be of most interest to USAC students are included below as a sample of what the University offers. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites which are determined by Yonsei University. Yonsei University is AACSB and EQUIS accredited.
