We are pleased to inform you about our 2016 International Summer Program. Chung-Ang University
(CAU) has offered an International Summer Program for several years. Thanks to the continued success of our short term program, in 2016, we decided to continue the International Winter Program to expand the opportunity for students around the world to experience not only what it is like to study at Chung-Ang University, but also to share the rich and wonderful culture of modern and traditional Korea.

CAU’s International Summer Program (ISP) is a hybrid program providing students with a window into Korea, where courses are coupled with cultural experiences that foster an understanding of Korea’s Culture and Society. Our program is broken into two sessions, Session 1 and Session 2. Session 1 will provide students with 6 transferable credits while Session 2 will provide students with 5 transferable credits. Session 1 allows students to take elective courses (3 credits) that are related to certain majors while Session 2 offers a Korean Language course (3 credits). Both sessions have a mandatory Korean Culture and Society course (3 credits for Session 1, 2 credits for session 2).

CAU is the best university for Korean Culture and Arts. CAU ISP will offer unique opportunities to learn and experience Korean Culture and society, history, religion, arts, and political issues; Almost everything in Korea today through a variety of cultural activities and excursions. The ISP will have students take an in-depth look at Korean Pop Culture, visit summer festivals, and much more.

All courses and activities will be offered in English so that students can enjoy this program without a language barrier. The ISP allows students to not only learn, but be immersed in Korean culture. Students will enjoy this program with both Korean and International friends.
