The Institute for Korean Studies at IU promotes interdisciplinary approaches to the understanding of South and North Korea. IU has a distinguished history in Korean Studies and is one of the oldest programs in the nation. This distinction, along with leading-edge resources and faculty expertise in the field, makes us a hub for Korean Studies in the Midwest.
We provide support and funding opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students who wish to pursue Korean Studies at IU. We also advance cultural fluency and public understanding of Korea through colloquia, lectures, and seminars.
