Basic Korean Language Program (101-104) and General Education Courses

All language courses are designed to develop or improve four language skills - i.e., speaking, listening, reading and writing - in students’ performance and competence. In addition, the courses offered in the Korean Language program integrate cultural components into course materials by using authentic texts and audio-visual materials including newspaper articles, dramas, films, documentaries, etc.

The BLP is made up of a four course sequence. Not all courses are taught every semester.
