This program is open only to graduate and undergraduate (major or minor) students from UNC-CH School of Information and Library Science.

Sunkyunkwan University (SKKU) was founded over 600 years ago, and is one of Asia’s oldest institutions of higher learning. The literal meaning of “Sungkyunkwan” is “an institution for building a harmonious society of perfected human beings”. Students attending this program will have access to one of the most respected Library and Information Science programs in Asia. Gaining an international perspective will greatly enhance their understanding of Information Science, and thus will be crucial in giving students a competitive edge as they continue in the field.

SKKU’s location in Seoul, along with the wealth of cultural activities planned for exchange students, provides students with the opportunity to have an immersive cultural experience in one of the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan cities.
