Korean Studies with Japanese BA

This balanced programme of language study and lecture-based modules helps you develop a critical understanding of Korea while gaining additional Japanese language skills.

You'll learn Korean and Japanese language from scratch, which will be complemented by modules about Korean society such as history, culture or politics, and you'll spend a year studying in Seoul at one of our partner universities.

Through optional modules you'll get the opportunity to study East Asia as a region, exploring Korean issues in a regional or global context. Modules on contemporary Japan are also available and cover issues relating to history, society and politics.
