Certificate in Korean Studies
The personal enrichment Korean Language courses can be taken as part of the Center for Asian Studies Certificate of Completion in Korean Studies. The Center for Asian Studies Certificate in Korean Studies is conferred upon those students who have demonstrated a fundamental knowledge of Korean language, culture, history and society. There are three components to the certificate. The Korean language component builds listening and speaking, and reading and writing skills. Mastery of the hangul writing system and basic grammar and vocabulary are the focus of this sequence. The Korean History, Culture and Society component gives a foundation of knowledge that anybody studying Korean society needs through an academic course that is designed for the Certificate Program. The third component is the experiential component that provides a structured opportunity for students to experience Korean culture first hand.
