The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures (EALC) at Washington University in St. Louis announced on its website that it will start offering a new undergraduate major program in Korean studies, beginning Fall 2016. Korean studies has been available as an undergraduate minor through the department. More details about the new major, (as well as newly streamlined requirements for the minor for students starting from or after Fall 2016), can be found here on the EALC website.
The East Asian Library holds more than 3,000 titles of Korean books. The Libraries collections also include English-language books and journals on Korea (housed mostly in Olin Library), and electronic databases such as DBpia and KISS. We are excited to welcome new Korean studies majors!
