Why Should I Take Korean Studies?

  • Most Korean companies are looking for international people who know about Korean society and culture.
  • Each semester, many international students' grades do not satisfy the scholarship criteria of 2.5 and above. Under a relative evaluation system, competing against fellow international students is much easier than against Korean students.
