This course aims to build on a basic knowledge of modern Korean and classical Chinese or modern Japanese. Students are expected to attend up to ten hours per week of tutorials and should expect to spend an additional thirty to forty hours a week, perhaps more, during each full term for preparation. Language instruction, the reading of prescribed texts, and bibliographic or methodological exercises are usually conducted in tutorials for which students are expected to prepare thoroughly in advance. Lectures are provided for instruction on general themes of Korean and East Asian history and critical issues in contemporary and classical Korean linguistics. Students are advised to take advantage of public lectures offered on China and Japan, since they also supply historical context, comparative linguistic information, regional background, and comparative perspectives for work in tutorials.
