How to search for courses:
You can search for courses on-line at the following website: http://sugang.snu.ac.kr

The initial page is in Korean, but you can find the “English” tab on the right top of the page.
Then click "Course Search" tab and you can search for courses offered in English at the website using the "advanced search" tool, checking the "English Lecture" box.

You will need to set Year and Semester in order to better search for courses offered in your proposed study period. (If you are coming to SNU for the spring semester 2015, then you may refer to the one for the 1st semester 2014, * 1st semester = Spring semester, March-June * 2nd semester = Fall semester, September-December)

As you click a title of a course on the search results screen, a new window will pop up and you can find specific details and information on the course. There is a “syllabus” tab and you can download a file there.

If a syllabus is not available, then you need to contact a department office directly and contact information can be found at http://en.snu.ac.kr/undergraduate-programs
