Asian Studies–Korean Studies Concentration, A.A.-B.A.
This is a suggested course plan. It is highly recommended that you meet regularly with your academic advisor to determine your course selection and progress toward graduation.
Students who transfer to UNC under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) have all lower-level General Education requirements completed, but must complete these requirements through transfer or UNC coursework: Global Language, Research and Discovery, Lifetime Fitness, Communication Beyond Carolina, Campus Life Experience, and, where applicable, Supplemental General Education. Students who do not transfer in under the CAA should work closely with their advisor to determine which requirements apply to them for the IDEAs in Action General Education curriculum.
This Catalog also includes a complete list of requirements for the Asian Studies–Korean Studies Concentration B.A. degree.

Required in the major.
In order to complete the Korean Studies Concentration in four semesters at UNC, students must place into KOR 203 or higher.
The Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies requires that all students with prior knowledge of Korean take a placement test. The beginning language course at UNC is decided by the placement (not by test credit or transfer credit).
Elementary Korean (KOR 101 & KOR 102) is sometimes offered in the summer, so students whose initial placement is KOR 101 or KOR 102 might be able to take these classes the summer before their first fall semester at UNC-CH.
- The full lists of introductory-level courses, Korean literature and culture courses, and other major courses can be found on the major requirements page.
- Students must take at least one introductory-level course (3-6 total hours), at least two Korean language courses beyond KOR 204 (6 hours) and at least two Korean literature and culture courses (6-15 total hours), and may take up to 9 hours of other major courses.
- No more than two introductory courses (6 hours) may count toward the major. It is recommended that students take at least one of these courses either prior to or concurrent with upper-level Korean literature and culture classes.
- A total of 28 hours is required to complete the Korean Concentration. The first three levels of Korean (KOR) can count toward the General Education Global Language requirement and have not been included as additional hours for the major.
IDEAs in Action: KOR 203 fulfills the GLBL-LANG requirement.
