Abstract

This study focuses on the changes of organizational structure and instructional programs in the field of higher education in Korea since the fall of the Rhee government in the spring of 1960. Other periods of higher educational development are: Japanese occupation; U. S. Military Government from 1945-1948; and, the Rhee government, from Korean independence to 1960. A final section provides a comparative view of Korean higher education. For example, the ratio of higher education enrollment to estimates of the population aged 20 to 24 is 5.7 in Korea, a higher ratio than such European countries as Spain, Italy, Poland, and Norway. A 24 page appendix provides selected data on institutions of higher education in Korea for 1963.
