The Summer School provides foreign students with an enriched cultural and educational experience for two to four weeks. The program consists of academic courses covering diverse subjects and various activities including field trips. It is divided into two non-overlapping sessions, Session A and Session B, which share common features. Students can choose one or both sessions according to their schedule, preferences and purposes.

Session A ( June 22 - July 17, 2015)

Session A consists of four-week intensive courses on academic subjects and also includes cultural activities. Lectures are three hours daily from Monday through Thursday, and Friday is an activity day. Six courses are offered, each carrying three (3) credits, and participants can choose up to two of them. Official transcripts are issued to students who complete the courses.

On successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

* Describe the major schools of thought in East Asia's intellectual history
* Assess the influence of traditions on Korean thought
* Apply ideas and approaches studied to issues of contemporary life
* Examine the influence of religious plurality on contemporary Korean society

Session B – (August 3 - August 17, 2015)
