  • Objectives
    Students who study and use the Korean language will gain a profound appreciation of different ways of thinking, a diverse history and rich cultural traditions. Students will experience contemporary Korean popular culture such as films and TV drama. Korean skills give you a competitive edge in the job market, for example in law, business, tourism, teaching, finance, diplomacy, journalism, science, information technology, manufacturing, and any area with an international focus. Presently in Korea there are many English teaching positions available, from kindergarten to university level.
  • Academic Title
    Bachelor of Arts (Korean)
  • Course description
    A Bachelor of Arts degree enriches your understanding of how human beings make, recognise, and debate about life's meaning and the values that support civilisation. The BA offers a wide choice of academic subject areas in the core disciplines of humanities and social sciences. Students tailor the degree to suit their own career aspirations - there are many majors from which to choose. Students undertake two single majors, or a more concentrated extended major and a minor, plus a range of electives. A BA graduate is someone who has gained skills and knowledge, not just in a subject area but also in written communication, critical thinking, and problem solving and can apply these skills in many different jobs, careers and life situations.

    The program provides graduates with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding. The program offers courses in the core disciplines of humanities and social sciences. The program is also available in dual degree format with a range of other UQ degrees. At the Ipswich campus you will enrol in the first semester (four courses) of the Bachelor of Arts degree. On successful completion of this semester at Ipswich you will then transfer to the wide range of study areas available at the St Lucia campus. The four courses available at Ipswich will normally be in the areas of Communication, English, History, Philosophy and perhaps Music. All courses studied at Ipswich form part of the BA majors at St Lucia. The courses available at Ipswich are designed to provide a pathway to the Bachelor of Arts at St Lucia. Note: there are no Arts courses offered in the second semester at the Ipswich campus.

    The honours program requires an additional year and calls for greater specialisation in a chosen area at a high standard of scholarship.
