ATENEO KOREAN STUDIES PROGRAM: INTERDISCIPLINARY HUB FOR EXAMINING,
ENGAGING AND EXPERIENCING KOREA IN PHILIPPINE ACADEMIA
Korean Studies in Ateneo de Manila University was first set up in 2012 as
the Ateneo Initiative for Korean Studies (AIKS) -- a platform for
consolidating all Korea-related initiatives in the university and for
incubating an autonomous academic Program on Korea. Within a short span of
2 years, the initiatives resulted to a Minor Program in Korean Studies;
which was incubated in and by the Department of Modern Languages of the
School of Humanities; and another year later, to the creation of
a full-fledged Korean Studies Program (KSP) under the School of Social
Sciences, the first of its kind in the country. Through its close
collaboration with other academic departments within the university and
with Korean Studies experts and organizations here and abroad, KSP was able
to grow as an Interdisciplinary Hub for Examining, Engaging and
Experiencing Korea in Philippine Academia, with the widest course offerings
on Korean Studies for undergraduate students, covering themes across
various disciplines in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Apart from its
regular courses, KSP likewise offers Extramural Classes to the public and
has similarly pioneered the conduct of Regional and Inter-university Korean
Studies Outreach Seminars/Workshops/Lectures through its 'Korea 101 Lab'
Program. In 2016, it completed the development of the 'Portal of Korean
Studies Resources in the Philippines', the only database that collates and
centralizes access to Korean Studies references in the country. Through
continuous research and collaboration with its partners, KSP endeavors to
promote the critical study of Korea and contribute to the strengthening of
