SMU is the nation’s first women’s university established in 1906 by the initiative of our own people, led by Empress Sunheon, when Korea was in the midst of the historical turmoil caused by foreign powers.
Sookmyung is set to cooperate in globalization with other leading higher institutions of the world. Our students are the rising women leaders of the 21st Century who will be prepared to take proactive measures in solving the major high tech scientific issues of our global community through their competency gained in the high tech information & communication science as well as a core liberal arts tradition. Spending a summer amongst such students will provide invaluable experience, insight to the global community and a close look into Korean’s modern life and traditional history.
Sookmyung Summer Program allows students to take part in an exciting Korean college life with motivated and brilliant women. There are also opportunities to experience traditional cultures within and off campus. World renowned Korean embroider, Jung Young Yang, has granted her collection to Sookmyung where her works are opened to public.
Sookmyung University’s Summer Program is a golden opportunity to spend your summer meaningfully by participating in a digitalized, knowledge managed and culture oriented program.
