Kyung Hee University, one of the most reputed Universities in South Korea has recently begun accepting applications for its newly initiated ‘Humanity, Civilization & Global Governance’ program from their International Summer Campus (Global Collaborative Summer Program).
Students of the program will be able to attend valuable lectures and productive forums conducted by significant professors from Ivy League Schools like Princeton, University of Pennsylvania and other major universities like Notre Dame and UC Berkeley.
The cause of this being implemented is to expand a student’s knowledge in their respective fields and gain crucial perception of the careers in front of them. The students will also be allowed to participate in different seminars where representatives from various international organizations will hold discussions on their fields of work to enlighten the students on their careers of choice.
The Global Collaborative Summer Program is open to all domestic undergraduate and graduate students and all international students pursuing interests in Humanity, Civilization and Global Governance.
