The International Summer Semester at SKKU is a unique occasion for students from all over the world to come together, to study a range of topical subjects while exploring the great city of Seoul and learning about the ancient, as well as the modern culture of Korea. For me, as a professor teaching a course on international relations, it has been an incredible experience to discuss the key issues in world politics with students from many diverse backgrounds. The truly international character of the ISS obliges all participants to re-examine their beliefs and to examine global challenges from a variety of perspectives, creating a perfect learning environment.
