This programme is designed for students who wish to study Korean culture across disciplines while working with the language at a suitable level, and require a shorter period of study without a year abroad in Korea. It would suit students with no prior knowledge of Korean as well as those with intermediate to advanced language skills. Compared to the four-year BA Korean degree, students have more flexibility to structure their course of study in a range of disciplines according to their individual interests and language entry level. History of Art and Archaeology is an unrivalled opportunity to study the visual arts, architecture and material culture of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. In the first year, students are introduced to the art and archaeology of different regions. They also receive theoretical and methodological training to prepare them for the study of Asian and African art. In subsequent years students broaden and deepen their knowledge and have the chance to specialise in particular regions or themes. An emphasis is placed on training students’ visual memory through the study of images. Students are also provided with a critical introduction to the creative and cultural industries.
