Minor

For students who matriculated in Fall 2019 and thereafter, the minor in Korean requires a minimum of 15 credit hours distributed as follows:

  1. Language Study: Students must complete at least two semesters of language study beyond the first-year level or the equivalent. For heritage speakers with competency beyond the second-year level, the completion of one semester of Advanced Korean will satisfy the language requirement for the minor. Advanced Korean may be repeated for credit and applied toward the minor.
     
  2. Literature and Culture: One upper-division 3-credit course in Asian literature and culture taught by EALC faculty, or in the event of a Korea-related course outside the Department, by a member of the Notre Dame faculty. Ideally this course should have a strong Korean component. University seminars do not satisfy this requirement.
     
  3. Additional Courses: The remaining credit hours may be fulfilled by additional courses under the rubric LLEA, or by courses (including those taken by students while studying abroad) approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

  2. Literature and Culture: One three-credit course in Asian literature, culture, and/or media taught by a member of the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, or in the event of a Korea-related course outside the department, by a member of the Notre Dame faculty. Ideally this course should have a strong Korean component. University seminars do not satisfy this requirement.
     
  3. Additional Courses: The remaining credit hours may be fulfilled by additional courses offered by EALC, or by other East Asian-related courses that are cross-listed by the Department, usually under the rubric LLEA, or by courses approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies. These may include courses taken by students studying abroad. Students are expected to demonstrate a strong Korean component when submitting courses for approval by the Dean.
