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 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 &#39;Korea 101 Lab&#39;
Program. In 2016, it completed the development of the &#39;Portal of Korean Studies
Resources in the Philippines&#39;, 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 Philippines-Korea
relations. <br><br></span></p>
