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 (CEAS) at UW-Madison are working hard to launch a major in Korean in the near future.
