Korean has been offered in the School of Modern Languages since Fall 2003. Korean began with a student initiaitive to raise funding, followed afterwards with the generous support of a grant from the Korean Foundation. Currently eight semesters of Korean are offered to advance students from introduction to fluency, guided by instructors who take great pride in their students' successes.
The Korean community in Atlanta has grown to over 83,000 people, and Korean language is becoming more useful than ever. The Korean program at Georgia Tech is the only 4-year curriculum in Korean in the metro Atlanta area. Georgia Tech is an ideal location for studying Korean language, as things learned in class can be immediately applied to interacting with a huge community of native speakers. We hope you join us in studying this great language!
The Korean LBAT program began in the summer of 2010, offering 9 credits in an 7-week, intensive program in Seoul. Students who want to improve their Korean skills can join in either 3rd year or 2nd year LBAT program.
