The programme’s curriculum is conducted entirely in English and truly interdisciplinary as it encompasses core disciplines in East Asian Studies and electives in two concentrations: International Relations or Global Business.
The curriculum for the "Economics and Politics in Asia" programme includes:
- Introductory courses.
- Core courses.
- Projects: «Data Culture», «Capstone Design for International Studies I, II».
- Internships and research seminars.
- Facultative courses.
Introductory courses are designed to provide a solid base of knowledge whereby students can master applied and specialized areas with respect to International Studies.
Core courses form the foundation of skills and knowledge in key areas of International Studies. Core courses are obligatory and students must take them during their first and second years of study.
Electives allow students to individualize their education tracks in East Asian Studies and obtain practical skills with respect to their Minor, as well as get a supplement to their Kyung Hee University Degree in Global Business or International Relations. At the start of the first year, students choose their Major in East Asian Studies: Chinese Studies, Korean Studies or Japanese Studies. In the second year, students may select one course for their Minor, and in the third year, three to four courses for their Minor.
Project work and internships offer students the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired.
In order to gain analytical and research skills, students will attend a scientific and research seminar. A large part of the seminar is dedicated to helping them develop their Bachelors’ thesis.
