About us

Over the past 20 years Korea has become one of the leading industrial nations in East Asia, but it is not only for its economy that Korea is interesting. An ancient and highly developed civilisation, a modern and dynamic society, a country with strong post-colonial conflicts, an exciting and vital popular culture and a linguistically interesting language are just a few of the aspects of the hitherto relatively unknown Korea here in the West.

Our studies concentrate on the modern language and Korea’s cultural and social life, but you will also learn about Korean history and its economic and political situation. Korean is also one of the three language options in the Master's Programme in Asian Studies.
