The DIS was established in 2004 with the goal of providing students with the requisite skills and knowledge for assuming positions of leadership in international institutions or in other careers with an international focus. In furtherance of this goal, the DIS offers a unique interdisciplinary approach to undergraduate education in which all courses are taught in English by an international faculty of highly qualified professors. The DIS also regularly invites experts working outside the university to give guest lectures on topics such as international trade and diplomacy.
While the core objective of the DIS is providing students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to survive and thrive in an increasingly globalized society, this is not our only concern. We believe that the DIS should benefit not only the students who pass through it but also society as a whole. In keeping with Hanyang University’s motto of “Love in deed and truth,” the DIS aims to instill in students a desire to give back to society and a willingness to contribute in constructive ways to some of the great global challenges confronting humanity in the 21st century. Toward this end, and we provide students with opportunities to participate in various international conferences, international youth camps, and global volunteer activities.
Thank you for your interest in the DIS. I invite you to explore the department in person or through this website and to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
Turn Your Dreams into Global Opportunities with the DIS!
Dean, Division of International Studies
