Program Description:
EwhaSummerBanner
The Program
  • Study at Ewha Women’s University in central Seoul, one of the most prestigious universities in South Korea.
  • It was established in 1886 as the first all-female university in Korea.  While the university is all female, the summer program is fully co-ed.
  • The Ewha International Summer College is a 4-week program focusing on Korean culture, Korean languages, East Asian & Korean studies, law, politics & culture, fine arts & design, and economics & business.
Your Host City: Seoul
Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, is among the world’s largest cities, with a population of more than 10 million. The city is said to be built on eight mountains—four inner mountains that surround the old city, and four outer—so expect some steep slopes and spectacular views.  The city also has a vibrant nightlife with a variety of clubs, bars, cafés, and restaurants. Seoul may be large and the pace of life often frantic, but that doesn’t mean there’s no chance to relax—nothing gets in the way of the daily tea ceremony.


Academics
In order to have an idea of what classes are available, you should visit the Ewha International Summer College website. 

Summer Session I is a four week program.  You will take two classes for a total of six credits.  You will have the option of taking Korean language classes as well as classes in English and in Korean.  When looking for courses, be sure that you are looking at courses in the correct summer session.  The Rutgers Study Abroad office offers credit only for Session I.

The credit translation system between Ewha Women’s University and Rutgers University is 1:1, meaning a 3-credit course at Ewha University will also be a 3-credit course on your Rutgers University transcript.  Students will earn 6 credits for the Ewha Summer Session I program. It is not possible to take classes as not-for-credit or pass/fail.

For information about Study Abroad credit transfer, registration, and transcripts please visit the Academics section of our website.


Excursions
Every weekend, program coordinators will accompany you on numerous exciting hands-on field trips to places which offer opportunities to best experience the tradition and culture of contemporary Seoul. Highlights include: a Korean folk village, a demilitarized zone, the House of Sharing, a B-boy Performance and Everland, the largest theme park in Korea, as well as a lesson in Korean cooking.

Accommodations and Meals
You will live in the Ewha-Samsung International House (I-House) or the Graduate Student Dormitory (GSD).  Most international students are placed in on-campus housing at the Ewha-Samsung International House. The house offers both single and double rooms.  You can easily access the snack bar, gym, computer room, study rooms and kitchenettes when needed. Central heating and air-conditioning, as well as internet access are offered in each room. Bed linens, pillows and a blanket will be provided, but you should bring your own bath towels. Meal plans are not included. 

Since the I-House and GSD are always on high demand, securing a room should be one of the first steps to take after being accepted in to the Ewha International Summer College.
