Through a partnership between Taylor University and the King Sejong Institute Foundation, in Seoul, South Korea, Taylor students have unique chances to study Korean and experience Korean culture right here in Upland, Indiana. This is only the second campus of the King SeJong Institute, and the only Christian campus, established in the midwestern United States.
Bachelor of Arts students can fulfill their degree language requirement by taking two years of the Korean language, taught by Korean speakers. All Taylor students can complete liberal arts requirements through Korean cultural classes and history classes.
Learning other languages enriches our lives, opening up our minds to other cultures and ideas. Of all prominent languages in Asia, Korean is by far the easiest to learn.
Not planning to study abroad in South Korea? All Taylor students can participate in Korean cultural festivals and activities each semester. You can eat Korean food, learn cultural dances, listen to K-Pop music, and hear about the country’s Hallyu (Korea Wave of Korean Pop Culture).
The King Sejong Institute Foundation is a public institution under the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism in South Korea. Named after the king who established the Korean alphabet in 1443, the King Sejong Institute was founded to manage Korean language education abroad and inform foreigners about Korean culture.
Through Taylor’s partnership with Handong University and the commitment of the Modern Languages department, the King Sejong Institute is one of its allotted 200 global partners—11th in the United States and 2nd in the Midwest region.
