Faculty of Arts and Liberal Studies

What is the Faculty of Arts and Liberal Studies?
The Faculty of Arts and Liberal Studies is an educational department that provides a wide variety of liberal arts courses—ranging from the humanities and social studies to physical education and science—in order to organically combine liberal arts with arts-based majors.
  • 1. What are the required credits for liberal arts courses?
    Students can take liberal arts courses without any restrictions in terms of course content and credits; however, the amount of credits required for graduation varies by school.

    • School of Drama
    • School of Film, TV & Multimedia
    • School of Dance
    • School of Visual Arts
    • School of Korean Traditional Arts
      (Department of Arts Theory)

    ※ Average credits for standard liberal arts curriculum: 2 credits per course (2 hours)

  • 2. What is the open education "Special Lecture Series"?
    The Faculty of Arts and Liberal Studies offers a special lecture series in the spring and fall of every year. These series are open not only to undergraduate students, but also to faculty members, students from other schools, and the general public. By offering these series, which explore relevant topics and social concerns, we hope to grow as place of communication where people can broaden their artistic horizons and expand their knowledge.

    ※ The topics of our special lecture series are flexible, and we encourage students to share their proposals and ideas for special lectures.

  • 3. What is the book reading project "The Library of Young Artists"?
    Every month, faculty and lecturers recommend books for students on diverse and meaningful topics. Recommended reading may include classical books or books dealing with major contemporary issues. Based on these recommended books, students are invited to write their own essays for our annual book report competitions. Outstanding submissions are selected for publication.
