School of Visual Arts
The School of Visual Arts is a national institute for art education established to foster professional artists capable of meeting the needs of the rapidly changing social, political and cultural environment of the 21st Century. For this, the School works to implement advanced and futuristic pathways in art education. As Korea’s only college of fine arts to embrace all the fields of visual arts, including plastic arts, design, architecture and artistic theory, the School of Visual Arts breaks with tradition to set a new model for art education grounded in creative, enterprising and integrated thinking, rather than individual genres or media.
This innovative approach underpins all aspects of academic life at the School of Visual Arts, including improvements in the admission system, the constantly developing curriculum, the world-class education facilities and faculty, the close interaction and outreach to schools and departments, and practical education using internal and external exhibition facilities. In the twenty years since it was founded, it has succeeded in distinguishing itself amid the academic landscape for its innovation, breadth of approach and commitment to contemporary artistic practice, as evidenced by the impressive careers of its countless graduates.
