Opportunity Description

What is unique about this program?

The unique and signature dimension of the program is the shared cohort experience with a core group of students from the three universities and their 3-Campus partners, Cornell, Georgetown, USC, King's College London, the University of Geneva, and the University of Southern California. This cohort approach, with shared academic and cultural immersion in the three countries, gives students the critical knowledge and skills to forge essential intellectual and personal connections across in each of these leading Asian countries. Graduates of this distinctive 3 Campus Program develop an enriched understanding of the dynamic relations amongst the three pre-eminent nations of East Asia and the past, present and potential future pattern of relationships between East Asia and the wider world.

Students in this program have the opportunity to develop national competencies as a key foundation of regional and global competencies. In each of the three campuses/countries, they study the economy, politics, culture and society of the respective nation (Japan, Korea, China/Hong Kong). Their interdisciplinary studies and customized language courses give them the necessary knowledge and tools to comprehend each of these complex and vibrant nations and this exciting region as a whole.

3-Campus students have specially tailored opportunities to work and learn together through undertaking research and training in leading private and public institutions across East Asia, drawing on the prestigious local networks of Keio, Yonsei and Hong Kong Universities.
