On Sept. 17, HUFS signed an exchange agreement with the Latvia Ministry of Education and Science to pursue Latvian language and culture exchanges.
Peteris Vaivar, the Latvia ambassador, attended the agreement in person. He provided active academic exchanges and lots of historical information to HUFSans. “From now on, HUFSans could have more opportunities to learn about Latvia and experience their language and culture in new liberal arts classes,” said Lee Hye-ji, the assistant manager of the Office of International Affairs on Oct. 2.
Although the agreement does not involve the exchange of students, it provided an educational venue for learning in-depth about an unfamiliar country called Latvia in Korea.
