▶ Institute of Humanities
In 1983, the Institute of Humanities was established with the aim of the revitalization of humanities research, which is on the verge of academic crisis, through comparative study of local culture and other study areas.
In addition, we pursue the reestablishment of research in the humanities through study interchange between different areas.
We publish a 'humanity research journal' periodically, and have held an annual symposium since 1999.
▶ Hallym Institute of Archaeology
Our institute aims to be the representative institute in the Kangwon area, in order to execute archeology research through research and excavation of cultural properties in Kangwon Province.
In addition, we carry out inter-disciplinary research with the museum in Hallym University.
▶ Hallym University Institute for Commonwealth Literature Studies
In the study of literature in English, there has long been an awareness that the traditional Canon of literary works did not give sufficient recognition to important work from outside Britain, and, by extension, the United States.
The last few decades have witnessed efforts to rectify this imbalance through the increased study of English-language literatures from around the world.
Founded in 2005, the Hallym University Institute for Commonwealth Literature Studies responds to the need in Korea to contribute to this shift from center to periphery in literary studies, and also to seize the opportunities for collaboration across disciplines, and for the training and instruction of our students through English-language presentations.
Accordingly, the Institute has successfully conducted seminars and inter-departmental symposia, with the aim of promoting interdisciplinary research into English-language literatures from around the world, comprising nations as diverse as Ireland, Australia, Canada, and South Africa.
▶ Hallym Institute of Philosophy and Education
This institute is founded December 2005 with the aim mainly to support all the educational activities of the department of philosophy at Hallym University.
It also will enlarge its educational and research programs to help students to qualify and to adjust themselves more effectively than ever to the changing social and cultural environment of our post-modern and post-industrial era.
