Специалност

 

Специалност Кореистика е открита през 1995 г. и предлага три образователно-квалификационни степени – бакалавърска, магистърска и докторска.

През периода 1992-1994 г. корейски език в Софийския университет се преподава от Чой Куон Джин от Република Корея. Има много желаещи, включително и преподаватели от Факултета по класически и нови филологии към СУ, които посещават тези курсове. Най-привлекателното за студентите и преподавателите в тези курсове е, че те имат възможност да научат не само още един източен език, но могат и да се запознаят с корейската култура, история и литература като цяло.  Прочети повече...
