Korean Studies


Korean Studies at UNSW provides students with the opportunity to develop a balance of competent Korean language skills and in-depth knowledge and understanding of Korea.

Korea is one of Australia’s largest trading partners, and the political, sociocultural and educational dimensions of the relationship are ever becoming increasingly important. The Republic of Korea presents an interesting case for economic and social development in human history. It is the first country that has transformed itself from an aid recipient to donor, and is emerging as a major exporter of popular culture more recently.
Graduates with Korean skills and knowledge are found working in various fields as international relations, security, trade, commerce, technology, education, tourism and community services.
