About

Live and study in Gwangju, the sixth largest city in one of the most rapidly developing nations in East Asia, to fully enjoy the beautiful natural habitat, delicious cuisine, and rich artistic history of southwestern Korea. An hour by plane south of Seoul, it is located in the middle of South Jeolla province and is one of the most historically significant areas in the region. Gwangju was established as a city in 57 BC and is the birthplace of the modern democratic movement in Korea. During the period of Japanese rule, students in Gwangju ignited one of the major nationwide uprisings of the colonial period. Fifty years later, Gwangju was the site of the May 18 Democratic Uprising against the then-military dictatorship. It’s now home of the Square of Democracy and National Cemetery that commemorates the 518 uprising. The Gwangju program offers courses in Korean language, culture and history; business, management, and economics; literature; mechanical engineering; media; political science; psychology; and environmental and health studies. Take full advantage of field trips and co-curricular cultural activities to have a truly enriched cultural experience.

Explore one of Korea’s most historic and culturally vibrant cities, home to cultural festivals, art biennales, important historical sites and the birthplace of the modern democratic movement. Choose courses in Korean language, culture and history; business, management, and economics; literature; mechanical engineering; media; political science; psychology; and environmental and health studies. Join in various field trips and extracurricular activities including the Gwangju May 18 Memorial Park, a Korean Folk Village and Temple Stay, Gyeongju, Busan, and the Boryeong Mud Festival.
