The Korean Language Program encourages students to study abroad in South Korea for one year, in Spring/Fall or Summer to use and improve their Korean language proficiency. This experience will help you practice and strengthen your skills, and develop cultural awareness.
Example of approved programs
Studying in South Korea exposes you to new ways of living, learning, and interacting. You may find yourself browsing Korean cultural encounters, learning about traditional Korean dishes and different customs, and taking classes related to Korean language and culture.
Study Abroad Liaison
Each university department and program has a study abroad liaison who can answer questions about obtaining major/minor credits and help you make choices about your study abroad program . You should speak with this faculty member before you go abroad, and again when you return.
All information on study abroad faculty liaison can be found here.
Applying for credit in Korean language courses
Students wishing to receive Korean Language Program credit for work done off-campus during the academic year should discuss their desired courses with their study abroad liaison for Korean Language. After you return from abroad, complete the Request to Replace a Requirement form.
