FAQ of students

Q: I am a freshman in Korean Studies. Is it mandatory to take General Introduction to Korea?
A: No. It is basically optional. You can decide three courses from General Introduction to Korea, Introduction to Economics, World History, Introduction to International Politics, and Introduction to International Business. However, the Department of Korean Studies strongly recommends its students to take General Introduction to Korea, because it is a foundational core course of our major.

Q: Do I have to master TOPIK level 4 before I graduate? A: No. It is not mandatory to all students. However, if you receive EGPP scholarship, you have to improve your Korean language skill up to level 4 before graduation.
