University of Mississippi



The Department of Modern Languages at The University of Mississippi began offering instruction in Korean in the fall of 2011 and now offers an undergraduate minor in the language. Classes in Korean language average 12-15 students. In the fall of 2013 three levels of instruction will be offered and by 2014 the Department plans to be offering a four-year curriculum and hopes to be offering a minor in the language. The Korean faculty currently consists of two teachers, and students of the language have the opportunity to study abroad in Korea during the summer or the semester.
