To create more opportunities for FASS students to go on student exchange in Korea, the Faculty recently signed a student exchange agreement between College of Social Sciences, Ewah Womans University.

Ewha Womans University is a private women’s university in central Seoul, South Korea. It is one of the city’s largest institutions of higher learning and currently the world’s second-largest female educational institute. It is one of the best-known universities in South Korea, also considered to be one of the top universities in Korea.  As of 2012, it is ranked 40th in Asia and 341st in the world according to QS World Universities Ranking. Ewha is Korea’s only Harvard College in Asia Program (HCAP) partner.

With a broad spectrum of courses being taught in English, this will certainly in line with the many majors and interests of FASS students seeking to study abroad at Ewha. Their teaching and research strengths include English Language & Literature, Chinese Language & Literature, Public Administration, Women’s Studies, Media Studies and Law. Although a women-only university, they do welcome male exchange students.
