The goal of our Department of Korean History is to cultivate students’ capabilities to predict how the present and future society will develop based on different perspectives and scientific and systematic approaches to Korea history as well as the history of the eastern and western worlds. In particular, students will take a close look at a variety of results of the studies made by modern historians. Students will be able to grasp the knowledge of Korean history and culture by studying artifacts at the Museum of Hanshin University, which was opened in 1991, and by directly engaging in archaeological surface survey or excavation projects in and around Seoul, for instance, at the Pungnap Earthen Fortress where artifacts from the Baekje Dynasty have been recovered. The fact that our Department of Korean History is growing is well exhibited in a variety of academic cultural activities such as the Sema Reunion, the Academic and Cultural Festival, and the Stone Inscription Display operated by students.
