Seoul National University Kenya International Studies Program (SNU-KISP) or, "SNU in Kenya," was a summer study abroad program sponsored by the Office of International Affairs of Seoul National University. The course took place from June 25 to July 20, 2012 and the curriculum focused on "experiential learning."  

There were three study modules to the class: (1) African Landscapes and Human Evolution, (2) Development Studies of Africa, and (3) Art and Culture of East Africa. The enrolled students received six (6) credit hours from the Department of Archaeology and Art History / College of Humanities.

There were 28 students, one teaching assistant, two professors, and a host of guest speakers. We traveled to museums, rock art sites, community centers, universities, and archaeological sites in Nairobi and western Kenya. The interaction between all of the participants resulted in a very dynamic class.
