"The GW Institute for Korean Studies’ summer study abroad program in Seoul offered fifteen students an opportunity to learn about Korean identity, division, reunification, and the economic differences between the two Koreas. The participants visited numerous important sites and organizations in Korea, including the DMZ, Inter-Korean Transit Office, UN Human Rights Office Seoul, the Constitutional Court of Korea, Hana Foundation, the U.S. Embassy, LG Corporation, SK Telecom, and historical museums. It was extremely rewarding to see how the program illuminated the participants’ studies and motivated them to pursue even deeper study of Korea."
This semester-long exchange for students from the University of Macau Honours Program was established in 2014 through a special partnership between GW and the University of Macau, with the support of the Friedman Fund for Academic Collaboration. GW welcomed its first cohort to campus in Spring 2015. For more information, contact the Office of International Programs at [email protected].
