CKS Response to COVID-19

The Center for Korean Studies continues to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 situation and follow all campus and local government guidelines in regards to in-person events and activities. We encourage all friends of CKS to do the same and hope everyone is able to stay safe and healthy.

The Center for Korean Studies (CKS) is a unit of the Institute of East Asian Studies at UC Berkeley. The Center is one of the nation's most active academic centers for the study of Korean humanities and social sciences. Our goal is to use the academic resources of the University of California to promote broader understanding of Korea. Read more on our About CKS page.
