COURSES/ COURSE EQUIVALENCIES

There are also a few history, political science, and sociology courses that are taught each semester in English.

Currently, no course equivalencies exist for the semester and academic year options at Ajou University as 2012-2013 is the first year that UW-Eau Claire students have the opportunity to study for semester or year. Course equivalencies will be established as students apply to the program.
