UW-Superior students can live and study in the Global Village at Yonsei University in Wonju. Courses taught in English focus on Korean language and culture as well as a wide range of subjects in mathematics, political science, business and computing.
For the Spring 2007 semester, eight UW-Superior students are studying at Yonsei University. They recently e-mailed some photos, which are posted below:
