WELCOME TO THE KOREAN LANGUAGE PROGRAM (KLP) AT UW-MADISON

The KLP is currently offering four years of Korean language instruction from beginning to advanced levels.  Unfortunately, the UW-Madison does not offer a major in Korean, yet.  But hopes are high because EALL and the Center for East Asian Studies at UW-Madison are working very hard to launch a major in Korean in the near future.
