Colleges List

Introduction

The College of Humanities aims to nurture elites who can contribute to national development and culture by reorganizing the status of humanities to meet the needs of social change. For this purpose, we have had consistent academic exchanges with institutes like the Humanities Promotion Institute, the Classics Research Center, and the Humanities Research Institute and have broken down the walls between school systems to encourage external competitiveness in humanities. We will nurture elites who will lead in the era of globalism and information by expanding the area as a comprehensive cultural study based on humanities.
