In our Korean philology program, language is the most important part of every year’s curriculum – we teach you how to speak and write it, as well as its grammar, history, and literature. In order to help students with studying the latter, we offer such first-year courses as Introduction to literary studies and Introduction to linguistics. Our native Korean lecturers provide the best available source on what life in Korea is really like. An interesting point in the program is the Introduction to Chinese characters course, where you will learn to read and write hundreds of characters which still find use e.g. in Korean newspapers.
In addition to Korean, our BA program offers advanced German or English language courses, while our MA program entails the study of another Asian language (Chinese or Japanese, depending on the academic year).
