The College of English originated from the Department of English Linguistics, which shares the history of HUFS and is today positioned as a mecca for English education.
Keeping pace with current trends that stress the importance of English, the College of English was reorganized in 2005 to increase the specialization of each area of English language, British and American literature, and interpretation and translation.
