Department of Korean Language & Literature cultivates national identity and also globalization through in-depth learning of the Korean language and culture. Furthermore, the department enhances students' ability to be self-reliant through diverse conference/seminars. Our students obtain hands-on knowledge through field trips and build solidarities between the lower and upperclassmen students by holding an academic festival each year. The annually published Hyangran Eomun ('Hyangran Language & Literature') summarizess all the activities held by these activities. Our curriculum organizes subjects by focusing on aptitude and levels of difficulty for different majors. With specialties assigned to modern literature, classical literature, and Korean linguistics, the curriculum ensures that students gradually build up their skills in Korean language and literature.
