Dear Korean Language Instructors and Program

Hello. I am Ho-min Sohn, Director of the Korean
Language Flagship Center (KLFC) at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa (UHM).

The KLFC offers both the Master of Arts and Bachelor
of Arts degrees in Korean for Professionals through the UHM Department of East
Asian Languages and Literatures. Our goal is to cultivate global professionals
with superior-level fluency in Korean.

Both the MA
and BA programs include two components: domestic and overseas. The domestic
component at UHM intensively trains students in advanced-level Korean,
essential areas of Korean studies, and students’ major areas, all in Korean. The
one-year overseas immersion component in Korea consists of language and culture
training and coursework in students’ chosen fields at Korean University and
professional internship in institutions of students’ choice. Both the MA and BA
programs are open to all students with at least Intermediate Mid (on the ACTFL
scale) proficiency in Korean.

The KLFC is currently accepting applications to the MA
program for Fall 2013. The postmark deadline is January 15, 2013. For
detailed information about admissions and financial aid, please refer to our
website: http://koreanflagship.manoa.hawaii.edu.

Finally, UHM is a member of the Western Interstate
Commission for Higher Education. Thus, MA students who are residents of the
following 14 states pay in-state tuition at UHM: Alaska, Arizona, California,
Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South
Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming. [http://wrgp.wiche.edu/]

I would greatly appreciate it if you would encourage
your students to apply to the Korean Language Flagship programs at UHM. If you
have any questions, please contact us at flagship@hawaii.edu.

Thank you very much.

Ho-min Sohn, KLFC Director
