Program Overview

This program is offered in collaboration with Veritas Christian Study Abroad at the Konkuk University and the Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea. South Korea (or the Republic of Korea) is one of the most highly developed and stable democracies in East Asia.

The history of civilization on the Korean peninsula dates back almost 4,000 years, and the country itself has existed since 1948.

Veritas is a division of International Studies Abroad (ISA). You will be attending classes with ISA students as well as Veritas students.

Course Content

You are required to take a comparative religions course or an international missions/service-learning practicum taught by local Veritas staff, and a beginning language course. The remainder of the courses will be taken at either the Hanyang University or the Konkuk University.


This program includes several excursions, including trips to Busan, Bueyo and the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).


You will stay in one of the conveniently located on-campus dormitories.

Program Fees & Eligibility
