What sets this program apart from others such as Graduate School of Policy, Graduate school of Public Administration and KAIST Graduate School of Science and Technology Policy?
National graduate schools of policy or public administration focuses on the education and research of the issues concerning policies, administration, economics and diplomatic relations in next 5 years. It is rarely focused on developing long-term strategies or policies to solve the problems that may face humanity on a global scale over the next 20 years. This graduate program focuses on the national issues on a global scale rather than on current policy or domestic issues. Also, KAIST Graduate school of Science and Technology Policy is mainly reliant on the full -time students, but our graduate programs are open for the benefit of workers around Sejong through providing evening courses. We are planning to cooperate with Master’s in Intellectual Property and Scientific Journalism courses.
Will it be difficult to attend the graduate program while being employed?
Our graduate programs run on weekday evenings and in the daytime on weekends to accommodate the working hours of organizations. However, classes have a rigorous curriculum (attendance, quiz, exams) and require hard workload and commitment. KAIST is traditionally known for having exceptional students.
How are the courses conducted?
The lectures are mostly conducted by KAIST professors and distinguished professionals in their respective fields. The lectures are conducted in Korean and some are in English. The curriculum of the program includes a variety of lectures, debates, forums, symposiums, seminars, and field trips.
