Introduction to Department

Department of Korean Language and Literature is a traditional department researching Korean language and literature. It is the center of College of Humanities. When in 1980, Sejong Campus was established, Department of Korean Language and Literature opened. The department has actively researched, held academic symposiums and promoted students' activities since then.

The curriculum covers Korean language studies taught by excellent faculty members covering phonemics, semantics, vernacular studies and Korean language history as well as Korean traditional literature covering oral literature, ancient poetry, ancient novel and criticism, Korean Chinese classics and Korean folklore. It also provides in-depth lectures of overall contemporary Korean literature such as contemporary poetry, novel, literature history, criticism, play and image literature.

The theories learned at school will be subject to experience on the actual sites through voluntary folk and vernacular studies and literature trips. Also, there are small groups harmonizing tradition and diversity, developing young Korean language and literature students of excellent personality and competence.

Some of them are working as poets, novelists or scenario writers to further their literature. Some others are very active in the areas of journalism, advertisement, publication, corporate promotion and computer software.
