The Centre for the Study of Korea was established in 2006 with the goal of promoting critical approaches to the research of Korea. It aims to develop pedagogical materials for teaching about Korea both in the university and to the public. The Centre also has a constantly evolving line-up of speakers from North America, Asia, and Europe featured in lectures and events throughout the academic year. Participation in events is open to members of the university community as well as communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

The Centre does not itself offer any teaching programs but it supports courses on Korea through the Faculty of Arts and Science. For further information on Korea related courses and teaching programs, please see the Asian Institute and Department of East Asian Studies websites.
