Section 1


The Korean Language Program at University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) offers four levels of Korean from elementary (First Year Korean) to advanced level (Fourth Year Korean). We are one of the very few college Korean programs in North America that offers an accelerated Korean language course track for heritage learners, accommodating the unique needs and interests of learners with Korean heritage background. All courses are designed to develop or improve four language skills- i.e., speaking, listening, reading and writing in students’ performance and competence. These language courses are augmented with cultural instruction introducing students to both Korean culture and society, using authentic texts, audio-visual materials including newspaper articles, dramas, films, documentaries, etc.

Online Petition to Support Korean Studies at UIUC

Korean Students Association at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has initiated a petition, asking the College of Liberal Arts and Science to institutionalize support for Korean Studies.

We are trying to rebuild our Korean program at UIUC that has been neglected for years so that we can respond to clear student demands and compete with peer institutions.

Please click here and show your support for Korean Studies. Feel free to contact Jeeyoung Ahn Ha (j-ahn3@illinois.edu) if you have any questions about the petition.
