Korean is a great fit for a variety of students. Korean culture continues to have an increasing impact on the global market. Studying Korean creates new opportunities in everything from the arts to medicine to the social and political sciences.


We offer a Korean minor

Since its establishment in Fall 2008, the Korean program has offered three levels of Korean language courses and a content course, Exploring Korean History and Culture.
