International Affiliation
When it opened in 1997, Dong-Ah Institute of Media and Arts (DIMA) began the first academic exchange agreement with Illinois State University in the U.S. Currently DIMA has an academic exchange agreement with 10 schools from 5 countries. Through the agreements with prestigious colleges of media and arts in each country, specially selected students are transferred or exchanged, and prominent teaching staffs also participate in exchange programs in order to share new academic approaches and broadcasting technology.

International Academic Exchange

Created out of the academic exchange agreement with the Illinois State University in USA in 1997, DIMA has established active academic relationships with 10 schools from 5 countries. Through the agreements with prominent colleges in the field of broadcasting and arts, we run transfer and exchange system from which many selected students benefit each year, and function as a venue for academic and broadcasting technology exchange among faculties.

Exchange (Professor/Student) Program

Exchange program since created in Mar. 2002 with the Illinois State University has extended into the programs with California State University, Fullerton, and Belhaven College as well. These programs have also brought in students and professors who shared their ideas on culture and arts with DIMA students, instilling hope into them, and academic exchange has enhanced the scholarly communication among students and faculty from different cultures.
