This study aims to analyze the current state of Korean Studies in Central Asia and to suggest policy implications to promote Korean Studies abroad in terms of education to foster global citizenship. The results are interpreted based on the analysis of the literary data and perceptions of teachers who are members of the Association of Korean Studies Professors in Central Asia. According to the results, most teachers of subjects related to Korean society, history, or policy reported higher levels of awareness, and their classes were structured in a way to foster the next global generation, under such titles as human rights, education for sustainable development, and happiness education. However, they highlighted problems with educational materials related to international society trends, the establishment of a variety of subjects in the Korean Studies field, recruitment of Korean Studies doctoral degree teachers, etc. Based on these results, this study suggests that efforts to link each educational policy according to theme and content are necessary to empower students as global citizens and for the sustainable development of Korean Studies in the future.
