Department of Korean Studies
Korean Studies has been taught at the University since 1991, and graduate numbers have grown dramatically since then.
Our undergraduate program provides a broad foundation in Korea-related fields, encompassing not only 'language skills' but also a range of 'studies' units such as Korean history, linguistics, culture and society, translation and interpretation, and media and communication. Of course the study of the Korean language will be a great advantage in Korea-related fields.
The three-year program is a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum that leads to a Bachelor of Arts or any combined degree within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Korean language alongside an Asia-focused area studies major can also be incorporated into a Bachelor of Global Studies.
