Korean Language/Studies Program

Why do I want to learn Korean slide show

Welcome to the Korean language program at SDSU.  We offer Korean language and culture courses that meet diverse needs of the SD community. 

The general language courses focus on helping students develop integrated language skills and understand modern Korean language and culture.  In addition, the program offers a variety of Korean courses in a wide range of topics on Korean language and culture such as Korean studies through media, Korean civilization, Korean, and Business Korean.  We have also added an Internship course as well as a Practicum course in teaching Korean as second language. 

From fall 2013, we offer Korean Studies Certificate that declares student’s advanced level of language ability and in Korean and foundational understanding of the culture, history, socio-politics, and religions of Korea.
