The University of Wisconsin-Madison will soon launch a new undergraduate Korean Language Flagship Program, becoming the second Korean Flagship in the nation.

With a grant from the National Security Education Program, the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures and the Language Institute in the College of Letters & Science will create the new Korean Flagship, designed to prepare undergraduate students of any major for professional competency in Korean by graduation.
