EUROPEAN UNION STUDIES
European Union Studies at GSIAS develops European region specialists at a time when relations between Korea and the EU are anticipated to grow substantially. Especially after the signing of the free trade agreement between Korea and the EU, we anticipate growing need for experts to actively deepen exchange between the world's largest economic area and Korea. To this end, the department provides a comprehensive multidisciplinary program focused on the EU’s politics, security, economy, society, and culture and those of its 27 member states. Students in the EU Studies Department at GSIAS cultivate the basis for becoming EU specialists through systematic and rigorous study of the dynamic changes in the EU’s politics and international relations, economy, and society and culture, with the overall focus on the process of European integration. During the course of their study, students are required to improve their linguistic competence in one or more of the languages of the EU member states (including English, which is the main language of instruction). Language command is tested upon graduation. Most graduates work in businesses, research institutes, international organizations and trade promotion institutions. In addition, some graduates have expanded their career aspirations in the direction of government-affiliated institutions, diplomacy and higher education .
