SUNY Korea opened its doors in March 2012 as the first American university established on Korean soil. It is also the first university to join the Incheon Global Campus (IGC). SUNY Korea’s degree programs are comparable to prestigious universities in the United States. Students can enjoy both American education and dynamic Korean culture. We cherish moral integrity and strive to teach our students to serve others with virtue and vision of their own. We also offer affordable on-campus housings, a wide variety of scholarships, opportunities to form a global network, and a well-balanced educational system to raise our students as competent and responsible leaders. We are proud to have students with stellar academic achievements and seek students with exceptional talents. We are also proud to say that our student body is a true reflection of the global community, with over 30% international students. Currently, we are offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs from Stony Brook University (SBU), which is the most recognized university within SUNY. These programs are identical to those of SBU and are taught by SBU faculty. As a result, our students receive the same diploma issued by SBU upon their graduation. Our University continues to expand its program offerings in a variety of academic fields such as engineering, fashion, science, and more. We aspire to be the hub for global education, research, and innovation. To accomplish this, we will form partnerships with top institutions in both private and public sector, and continue doing our best to build a global network with leaders and talents from across the globe.
