Dean’s Greeting

  On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, I would like to welcome you to the Graduate School of TESOL (GS TESOL) at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. At GS TESOL, we do not just train skilled English teachers. Our graduates are also champions of diversity and equality in education and leaders who make a difference in the field. Our graduates empower students to become competent global citizens who change the world into a more beautiful place.

  Our curriculum strikes a balance between theoretical coursework and practical experience with a keen emphasis on the roles of English language in the 4th industrial revolution era. Our focus is on careers in English teaching, curriculum and materials development, design and application of technology-based English learning, English language testing/assessment, and other specialized areas of research and teaching. 

  Our international faculty members continue to distinguish themselves through their commitment to teaching excellence and scholarly activity. Their books and articles are published regularly by the top-notch journals and publishers in Korea and abroad. You will also find our faculty members eager to understand you as an individual and develop your potential as a professional. I am certain that our faculty and myself will do everything possible to allow you to take full advantage of our quality program and ultimately succeed in your career.
