CHS5005 AI Startup and Entrepreneurship 3 6 Major Master/Doctor 1-4 Challenge Semester - No
Recent years have witnessed a rapid increase in the number of so-called AI startups with AI as their core value, as the scope of AI's application across all industries has expanded significantly. This is gaining popularity not only in Korea, but globally as well. However, there are no theoretical or empirical guidelines regarding the entrepreneurial skills and business models that AI startups in a hypercompetitive market should possess. It is extremely harsh for those AI startups that are actually traditional businesses dressed up to look like they use AI to to succeed in a very competitive market. For AI startups with inadequate business acumen, gaining a foothold on the market is also a daunting task. By focusing on the following three goals, henceforth, this course aims to assist the growing number of AI startups with their challenges. Firstly, it categorizes the various possible business models for AI startup companies. Secondly, it then examines some of the most prominent domestic and international cases to illustrate the various types of entrepreneurship that AI startups require to thrive. Thirdly, a hypothetical AI startup is created, on a team basis, using real-world software such as Landbot, Stable Diffusion, and a number of no-code ML/DL (machhine learning/deep learning). Then its business model and entrepreneurship are established; and its efficacy is evaluated.

CHS7004 Thesis writing in humanities and social sciences using Python 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master/Doctor Challenge Semester Korean Yes
This course is to write a thesis in humanities and social science field using Python. This course is for writing thesis using big data for research in the humanities and social sciences. Basically, students will learn how to write a thesis, and implement a program in Python as a research methodology for thesis. Students will learn how to write thesis using Python, which is the most suitable for processing humanities and social science related materials among programming languages ​​and has excellent data visualization. Basic research methodology for thesis writing will be covered first as theoretical lectures. Methodology for selection of topics will be discussed also. Once a topic is selected, a lecture on how to organize related research will be conducted. In the next step, students learn how to write necessary content according to the research methodology. Then how to suggest further discussion along with how to organize bibliography to complete a theoretical approach. The basic Python grammar is covered for data analysis using Python, and the process for input data processing is conducted. After learning how to install and use the required Python package in each research field, the actual data processing will be practiced. To prepare for the joint research, learn how to use the jupyter notebook as the basic environment. Learn how to use matplolib for data visualization and how to use pandas for big data processing.
COV7001 Academic Writing and Research Ethics 1 1 2 Major Master/Doctor SKKU Institute for Convergence Korean Yes
1) Learn the basic structure of academic paper writing, and obtain the ability to compose academic paper writing. 2) Learn the skills to express scientific data in English and to be able to sumit research paper in the international journals. 3) Learn research ethics in conducting science and writing academic papers.
ERP4001 Creative Group Study 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master - No
This course cultivates and supports research partnerships between our undergraduates and faculty. It offers the chance to work on cutting edge research—whether you join established research projects or pursue your own ideas. Undergraduates participate in each phase of standard research activity: developing research plans, writing proposals, conducting research, analyzing data and presenting research results in oral and written form. Projects can last for an entire semester, and many continue for a year or more. SKKU students use their CGS(Creative Group Study) experiences to become familiar with the faculty, learn about potential majors, and investigate areas of interest. They gain practical skills and knowledge they eventually apply to careers after graduation or as graduate students.
FSE5003 Social Economy & Social Entrepreneurship 3 6 Major Master/Doctor 1-4 Social Entrepreneurship and Humanistic Future Studies Korean Yes
The main area of ​​activity of the social entrepreneur is the social economy. Social economy is one of organizing forms and ways of economic activities in comtemporary societies but it has received the least systematic treatment by academics and social scientists. The goal of this course is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the social economy, the core activity area of ​​the social entrepreneur, by addressing some important topics of social economy.
GSP5241 Spatial Modeling for Social Science Research 3 6 Major Master/Doctor Public Administration - No
Spatial dependence is prevalent in the society. Geographically proximate individuals, groups, and localities have similar characteristics and behave similarly via spillover effect. Also, the local governments that are closely located often pursue similar policy directions as they are affected by each other. This class aims to explore how to apply spatial dependence in social science research. The class topics include the concept and origin of spatial dependence, global/local spatial analysis, visualization of spatial dependence, and various spatial regression models such as spatial lag, spatial error, geographically weighted regression, and spatial Durbin.
