Taught by a faculty team of internationally renowned scholars, courses are centered on Humanity, Civilization and Global Governance.

With the exception of the Korean Language classes, all courses are taught in English. Students may add or drop classes within the first one to three days of the course depending on the total course hour. 

**For KHU Stud​ents ONLY**

KHU students who are expected to graduate in August 2019 may participate in the program, however, credits earned from the program will not be counted for their graduation assessment due to the designated academic schedule of KHU.

For KHU undergraduate students, a maximum of six credits earned from the summer break may be transferable. Therefore, the total number of credits earned through regular summer session classes, internships and Global Collaborative program should not exceed six.
