EastAsia International College is gearing up for its ten-year anniversary. Founded in 2008, EIC has become a leading center for teaching and research on East Asia. With faculty from the United States, Germany, China and Korea, students can take courses in English entitled Globalization of China, East Asian Political Systems, Society and Culture of East Asia and Korean Economy and Business. Other courses are organized around broader themes such as experimental economics, technology and social change and global economic governance.
Adding to the cosmopolitan atmosphere of EIC is a mix of students from all over the world. While the bulk of students are from Korea, many of whom have lived and studied overseas, there are also students from foreign countries, some of whom are pursuing undergraduate degrees and others of whom are participating in exchange programs. Out of this mix comes an invigorating environment where students are able to learn from each other at the same time they learn from their professors.
Special to EIC are its many extracurricular activities. These include an overseas freshman orientation, field trips to foreign countries, “special lectures” on topics such as China and the two Koreas, Japan-Russia relations and the Chinese Maritime Silk Road initiative and an international student forum held on the Yonsei Wonju campus. Students can also attend the East Asia Forum, a monthly seminar in which professors present cutting-edge research.
Also attractive about EIC is its location. Situated in Wonju, the college is close to Chiaksan National Park and a newly developing innovation zone in which some Korean public agencies are moving to. The city is also close to the venues for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. In another direction is Seoul, one of the great cities of Asia that has become even easier to get to with the opening of a new highway and soon high-speed rail line.
Going forward, EIC will endeavor to rise to even greater heights. Already, students can benefit from a new program involving the Graduate School of International Studies of Yonsei University in which students can earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years. And want to transfer AP course credits from high school to get a head-start on things? That is now possible for many AP courses.
Come join us at EIC. Here you will the find the warm atmosphere of a small-size college with the sophisticated charm of a large-size research university rushing head-on to the global world of the 21st century
