The University of Alabama Critical Languages Center started offering an interactive online Korean language program in 2019. Courses are available for high school students (who must enroll through UA Early College), undergraduate and graduate college students, and adult learners with a high school diploma or equivalent. All students will receive college credit once they successfully complete the course, except those who opt for Audit status. We offer the following courses in both Fall and Spring semesters:
- KOR 101-900/920 (3 credit hours)
- KOR 102-900/920 (3 credit hours)
Our online Korean courses are a hybrid of private tutoring and self-study of web-based materials, textbook, workbook, and live interaction with peers, Korean tutors, and the instructor via web conference. Most of our successful learners are studying on their own, without any classroom involved. All that is needed is a good internet connection, an account on Skype or Zoom with video and audio for live tutoring, your UA-issued “crimson” email address and access to UA's Blackboard Learn system that we will provide.
