Description

Korean Studies Electives


The Korean War is one of the most significant conflicts of the 20th century. It was the first conflict where the “Cold War” turned “hot,” and the aftermath of this conflict is still felt in the present day. Utilizing an inter-disciplinary approach, this course examines how the Korean War has had a profound impact in shaping life not only on the peninsula but also beyond. Students will analyze the origin of the war, its aftermath, and how it has been remembered and memorialized to the present day.
