The Korean Studies Group

The Korean Studies Group was established in the spring of 2002. It is an organization for graduate students who have an interest in Korea in their research. The fields of research of our students include history, literature, art history, sociology, public policy, and law.


KSG is a working group and provides a space in which the students can be critical and supportive of each other's work.

KSG also invites speakers, shows Korean cinema, and holds social events.
