Undergraduate study in Korean

What you can study in Korean

Language courses will give you communication skills and enable you to read simple modern Korean texts. You can also study Korean society, literature and culture.

Structuring your major in Korean

You can take a major in Korean as one of your two BA majors (a double major). You will need to pass at least 120 points (eight courses) towards each of your majors, including at least 45 points (three courses) at Stage III.

Taking a Module in Korean

If you would like to study Korean alongside your two BA majors, you can complete a Module.

A Module is an optional grouping of three courses on a particular theme which enables you to add extra value to your Bachelor of Arts.
