President 's Message



Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, established in 1954 under the founding spirit of “truth, peace, and creation,” marks its 60th anniversary this year in its endeavor to nurture talented individuals that contribute to the development of the nation and the prosperity of humanity.


With the goal of fostering future global leaders, HUFS has expanded its curriculum beyondthe45 language major courses, opening a range of new courses for both majors and liberal arts in the fields of regional studies, politics, economics, social studies, culture studies, and engineering, etc. In addition, we are striving to promote our students’ advances on the global stage by signing agreements on exchange programs with 554 universities and institutions from 88 countries around the world.


Going forward, we will continue to focus on nurturing globally competitive, talented individuals who can rise to the challenges of our era by continuously expanding our inter-disciplinary “convergence education” programs based on languages and regional studies, which are the university’s unique values. In addition, we will transform HUFS into a “university you want to visit” by creating a “university town” on our Seoul Campus and expanding the infrastructure for our Global Campus. Also, we will continue to work hard to ensure that our students take great pride in being members of HUFS, a “university you want to attend,” by offering them more opportunities for scholarships and overseas exchange programs.


We are proud of our 120,000 alumni, living and working all around the world, who have played key roles in the globalization of Korea. Still, we will not be complacent with our achievements. We will continue to devote our efforts to nurturing talents who are capable of going beyond the boundaries of different fields and are equipped with humanistic values and the global mindset which are demanded by our time.


Therefore, we encourage you to continue watching HUFS as we make a bold leap towards our future 100th anniversary as a “prestigious and influential ” university, building on our 60-yearlegacy and history.


We ask for your continued support and affection.

Thank you.


Kim In Chul
