New Korean Major!

The Korean Language & Literature major will provide students with broad and deep knowledge as well as a critical understanding of Korea’s rich literary and cultural traditions and contemporary culture, along with a high level of proficiency in the Korean written and spoken language.  The program moreover enables students to explore Korea’s cultural and historical connections with the rest of East Asia and the world, preparing them to function effectively in cross-cultural contexts and to contribute meaningfully to the global challenges of today’s world. Majors will leave the program as critically informed and discerning readers with the ability to communicate their ideas in well-structured and persuasive writing in Korean and in English. We expect graduates to pursue careers in translation, law, journalism, government, education, international business, and other related fields.
