International Development and Cooperation

Introduction

Since this program combines international cooperation with development, it gives students an overview and deeper understanding of essential ideas and practices of International Development and Cooperation (IDC). Therefore the program provides students a topical and thoughtful learning on the academic product of IDC. The program also provides students with political, economic, social and environmental perspectives of IDC through a multidisciplinary approach. Trying to incorporate objective viewpoints about governmental aid policies from developing countries in the South to developed countries in the North, it aims to explore a well-rounded view of developmental strategies as well as actors' behavior and precise issues of international cooperation.

The program is divided into three parts: (1) knowledge and information regarding the key motive power of IDC, Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) perspectives, (2) various IDC discourse such as development theories and their practical application cases, and (3) and exploration of contemporary politico-economic issues in the field of IDC. Finally the program is designed for students seeking to work in national/international public agencies, NGOs, non-profit organizations, and governments dealing with IDC issues.

NGO Studies

Introduction

The dramatic and rising importance of global civil society is undoubtedly underway throughout the world. Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in the non-profit sector as a part of this exciting new development are working with, collaborating with and/or competing with governments as well as markets as interdependence and globalization begin to change our understanding of society and politics. In these transformative times NGOs are often regarded as being the driving force behind global changes in politics, economics, social/cultural as well as ethical global issues. It is vital therefore to understand the connections, dynamics and relationships between state and non-state actors working in the contemporary global political era. NGOs in their strategies and policy objectives, crucially, may even go beyond the domestic boundaries of sovereign states into the realm of global governance. NGOs therefore represent a practical strategic part of rethinking the site and nature of politics, power and authority in the 21st century. Reflecting upon the growing importance of NGOs and civil society, the NGO Studies major at AJOU GSIS seeks to develop an understanding of domestic as well as international networking processes by combining theory and practice in this field of study.

For this purpose, the NGO Studies major provides prospective students with broad categories of subjects ranging from managerial skills for NGOs, to NGO strategic cooperation with international organizations. Along with two required courses (NGO Introduction and Research Methods), the NGO major offers four broad categories of classes related to current NGO activities. They are: first, NGO and Civil Society, related subjects including Social Movements and Civic Education; second, NGO and Global Governance, related subjects including International Cooperation and International Organizations; third, NGO and Policy, related subjects including Public Policy and Policy Planning; and fourth, NGO and Management, related subjects including Human Resource Management, Social Marketing, and Financing.

Accompanying these specific academic and theoretical aspirations, AJOU GSIS also seeks to offer more practical opportunities related to NGO activities in South Korea, connecting our students with a variety of internships at local South Korean NGOs. Such practical experience will not only aid an increase in practical and policy orientated knowledge about this important and exciting area of global politics, but will also provide students with an opportunity to use their academic skills and provide students with concrete employment opportunities in the future. This is because state and non-state global institutions look for candidates with a multidisciplinary background and with associated knowledge and experience. The multidisciplinary perspective will also allow students to identify current and future global trends and patterns through which to establish strategic areas of concrete policy advice both in government and civil society. Therefore the Degree program conforms with the overall objectives of the GSIS mission which is to promote cutting edge understanding and commitment to perspectives and policies that contribute to the positive development of global governance. The Degree will therefore be of intellectual and practical interest and establish career orientated opportunities for anyone who aims to work for globally orientated international organizations related to NGO activities, those students interested in constructing and coordinating future developmental projects in a variety of developing countries, those who have the intention of working with a variety of civic organizations, and finally, as a normative goal, anyone with original and inspirational ideas for a better understanding of the world and its evolution in the 21st century. Such candidates are all invited to study for the degree of NGO studies at AJOU GSIS.

International Trade

Introduction

To have an in-depth study of international trade stems from a humble premise that any analysis of economic, political and social implications of exchange between traders in more than two national markets differs from that between traders within a national market. International trade as a means for achieving better international cooperation and economic development is undisputable. Trade relations among countries have evolved through collective debate, negotiations, agreements and on many, varied and complex issues. To strengthen the world economy for a sustainable development of trade, investment, employment and income growth, the need to develop and nurture human resources for such an economic task is indispensable. It is in this respect that AJOU GSIS has taken the cue to train experts and professionals for governments, public institutions, private companies and firms, or individuals, with a view to enhancing their skills and understanding in the field of international trade, to handle the intricacies, issues, and challenges of the world trading system for a better future.
