The College of the Humanities consists of two divisions and one group of regional studies:
The Division of Language and Literature (Korean Language and Literature, English Language and Literature),
The Division of Humanities (Philosophy and History),
The Group of Regional Studies (three East-Asian National Cultures: Japan, China, and Russia).
The aim of the Humanities is the pursuit of universal human values, based on advanced communication skills and social and historical perspective, an approach to learning and research essential to all academic enterprise. It cultivates imagination, creativity and ethics through the combined abilities of literature and language, analysis and creativity.
In a world increasingly ruled by material imperatives, the place of studies in the Humanities as the bulwark of humanitarian values cannot be overstated.
In particular, the College concentrates on the acquisition of linguistic capability as an initial and necessary step before the commencement of individual research, and includes a semester-long overseas training program, as well as inviting foreign professors, by which students can derive a marked improvement in linguistic competence as well as a valuable cultural experience.
