Temple Summer in Korea: Global Mosaic
- Mid-June through mid-July
Language of instruction
- Except for a practical/survival course in Korean, all instruction is in English.
The Ewha International Co-Ed Summer College (Ewha ISC) at Ewha Womans University and the program director will organize a variety of co-cirricular cultural activities and field-trips throughout Seoul and other areas of Korea. This may include visits to a Korean Folk Village, a lesson in Making Kimchi at the Museum Kimchikan, a performance at the Cinecore Bibap Theatre, the trip to Everland Amusement Park, an excursion to the House of Sharing, a tour of Tongil Tower, as well as welcome and farewell ceremonies and luncheons. Ewha ISC University will also organize a variety of extra-curricular activities for Korean and international students, and students will have the opportunity to participate in PEACE (Professional Ewhaians At Cultural Exchange) Buddies, a program organized by Ewha ISC to introduce international students to local students.
The PEACE buddies are well-trained student volunteers and are required to speak a foreign language fluently and their job is to help the international students adjust to Ewha and in Seoul. Students will receive an email from their buddy a couple of weeks prior to arrival, and during orientation your buddy will be the first Ewha students to greet you while leading campus tours for international students. Apart from the field trips organized by the Ewha ISC, the buddies casually arrange numerous activities for international students, taking them to popular student hang outs and events around Seoul and Korea.
Douglas Greenfield is the Associate Director of the Intellectual Heritage Program, will serve as Program Director for the Temple Summer in Korea: Global Mosaic program.
