About the Korean Studies Institute (KSI)

The United States remains one of Korea's most important relationships, and the KSI is ideally situated to help both Koreans understand America, and Americans understand Korea. Furthermore, issues on the Korean peninsula dominate world headlines, whether it be the intractable North Korean nuclear problem or the "Korean wave" of movies and television dramas that has swept the globe. These and other issues directly affect both Koreans and Americans alike, and there is a genuine need for more and better education and scholarship that examines and illuminates these issues.

The Korean Studies Institute (KSI) at USC encourages education about Korean culture, politics, business, and history in the USC community and beyond.

Located next to Los Angeles' Koreatown - the largest grouping of ethnic Koreans outside of Korea itself - USC has long had a natural interest in Korean studies. USC first taught Korean language in 1942, and since then a number of notable Korean studies scholars have taught at USC. The Korean Studies Institute was established in 1995 to further spur the development of education and research about Korea at USC.

Today the KSI houses eight affiliated faculty members, along with numerous visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellows. We teach undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in a variety of disciplines dealing with Korea.
