Special Programs

Combined B.A.-M.A. program (3+2 Program)

CIS encourages Bachelor students to pursue postgraduate studies closely affiliated with the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) at Korea University. CIS & GSIS offers a combined program of three years Bachelor’s and two years Master’s degree which can be completed in a total of five years. Interested students are suggested to apply to the 3+2 Program at the start of their junior year.


CIS actively encourages first professional experiences and coordinates internship opportunities for students. The internship program offers information about internship opportunities across diverse institutions and corporations such as the UN, the Asian Development Bank, international NGOs, and other public and private organizations. Students gain first-hand experience in the activities of government and business organizations. Internship opportunities are posted by the Career Development Center (see Undergraduate program → Career Development).

Freshman/ Mentoring Seminar

All CIS freshmen are assigned to freshmen seminars. These seminars are mentoring programs in which students are assigned to a faculty member as their personal mentor. This allows students to discuss and consult with KU CIS faculty members about their study visions and career outsets. The main goal is to facilitate interactions between students and faculty members in order to ensure satisfied students as well as maximum study and career success.
