Sogang University was established by the Society of Jesus to provide an education based on Catholic belief and inspired by the Jesuit educational philosophy, in conformity with the Korean tradition of education. Sogang University's goal is to educate the whole human person on foundations of love and faith, encouraging all its members to be intent on the pursuit of learning as a sincere quest for truth, resolved to practice justice and respect the human dignity and worth of every person.
The Sogang International Summer Program (SISP) is a 4-week program for students who wish to broaden their academic experience. It is also a great opportunity to explore Korea and engage in cultural exchanges with students and faculty members from around the world. By joining our program, students may combine intensive classwork with exciting field trips and various extracurricular activities alongside Sogang University students. Students can also take advantage of their stay in Sinchon where Sogang University is located, the lively college town in the center of Seoul!?
In addition to the LMU application, students are also responsible for applying for the program directly with Sogang University by their set deadlines.
