Since its establishment in 1996 with the goal of systematizing and globalizing Korean Studies, the Korean Studies Department at GSIAS has produced many competent graduates through an active support system that boasts a comprehensive scholarship program for international students. Graduate students are able to nurture their intellectual interests by selecting courses from a broad curriculum covering Korea's politics, international relations, economy, society, and culture and history in conjunction with courses in the Korean language that help students develop fluency. Graduates are now working in their home countries as specialists in various Korea-related fields. The department also admits Korean students with the aim of training them to teach the language and about the country in all aspects.
