    Course Description
    Students will take basic or intermediate Korean class based on the results of the placement exam on-site. They will learn Korean through the use of various mediums, such as textbooks, K-pop songs, K-dramas, and literature. Not only will students learn basic Korean expressions they can readily use during their time in Korea, they also will study the culture that is inherent in the language and alphabet. English-taught lectures will cover a wide range of Korean cultural topics including history, politics and the economy, religion, literature, leisure and everyday life, and the ‘Korean Wave.’ Students will gain a deep understanding and perspectives of contemporary Korean cultural phenomena.
