Study Korea Studies in Korea
The Graduate School of Korean Studies (“GSKS”) is a research-oriented graduate school in the fields of humanities and social sciences pertinent to Korea, which aims at nurturing scholars who will contribute to the development and globalization of Korean studies. Since its establishment in 1980 as Korea’s first professional school dedicated exclusively to Korean studies, the GSKS has provided intensive research-oriented education through eminent professors’ close mentoring of students.
In 2015, the Korean Culture and Society major was newly established under the Division of Global Korean Studies with a goal to equip students with knowledge of Korean culture at large through interpretation of the original text relevant to Korean history, civilization, society and thought. Furthermore, it reflects our future-oriented aspiration of internationalization of tradition and preparation of the unified Korea. Recruiting suitably qualified applicants for the major, we plan to fully support them to grow them into potential faculty members in the field of Korean studies abroad.
