Dept. of History

Introduction

On December 28th, 1973, the Department of History was originally founded as the Department of Korean History Education. It was first renamed as the Department of History Education and finally renamed as the Department of History offering education in Korean History, Western History, and Asian History. The department aims to cultivate students' thinking ability in mapping the future, along with their historical consciousness, which clearly explains why we should learn history. Through the departmental spring and fall academic field trips and various rubbed copy exhibitions, the department provides students with on-the-spot training and opportunities to appreciate the ancestral spirits of the past. As the study of history aims to prove the development process of both the history of humanity and culture, it places an emphasis on cultivating an ability to map the future and understand both the past and present, in the midst of the universality and distinctiveness of each period.

Educational Objective

Students should study history-related research results, broaden their knowledge on history based on what they have learned, examine the causes of particular historical events, and compare them with other historical events to further draw both similarities and differences between them. This course not only encourages students to feel that they are actually responsible for creating the shapes of the world history, but also attempts to broaden their scope of historical knowledge through education on Korean History, Asian History, and Western History. In addition, the course offers various opportunities to visit a number of historical sites in order to cultivate students' ability to create new research methods and to clearly understand the significance of history.

Educational Goals

  1. To encourage M.A. students to publish their research papers at least once a year and actively participate in the campus academic seminars.
  2. To encourage students to publish their papers in the national-level history societies
  3. To provide students with on-the-spot experience through various field trips.
