The Learning Environment
The Korean program offers a small lecture courses with features of recitations/practice sessions to allow students’ active interaction and participation in the target language; we do not offer online courses although online materials are used to supplement the classroom instruction. The advanced undergraduate content courses are combined with graduate offerings, allowing undergraduates to get early exposure to graduate-style coursework. Faculty also offer independent studies for students interested in areas that do not match the program's regular offerings. The program provides a capstone experience for students to work on a senior project under the guidance of a faculty advisor. It also offers an internship course for students who are interested in teaching Korean as a foreign language.
