Korean Program Description

The Department of Asian Languages and Literature offers an undergraduate major and minor in Korean. In the major and minor, students will develop their ability to read, write, and speak Korean and will combine these language skills with an understanding and appreciation of the literature, linguistics, and culture associated with the language. Students are encouraged to explore wider interests by taking courses in other units and to take advantage of numerous study abroad opportunities. A popular option for many undergraduates is to combine a major in Korean with a second major from another department, such as Business Administration, International Studies, Biology, or Computer Science. Graduates of AL&L go on to a wide variety of careers, reflecting the indispensability of knowledge of Asian languages and cultures in our increasingly interconnected world.
