Overview

Here at the Busan University of Foreign Studies, we have a vision for Korean education towards cultivating students who can create global business opportunities, while embracing the world based on pan-academic and multi-cultural knowledge. The university's core subject areas are centered in giving our students expertise in foreign languages, while at the same time gaining deep cultural understanding of the international community. In that regard, the BUFS focuses on educating students to acquire the systematic knowledge on foreign countries while providing open-mindedness so that they can actively adapt to foreign cultures. At the same time, the university offers students with the specialized and hands-on education to enable them to become qualified global citizens through gaining a international outlook and localized critical thinking.

As the Republic of Korea is rapidly advancing into globalization, in 1997 the ministry of education selected the BUFS to be supported towards the national goal of developing work forces enabled with international skills and expertise. This university endeavors to maintain the best levels of foreign language education based on the specialized faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and innovative researches. Founded on Christianity, the BUFS pursues caring social values, searching for creation of an all-inclusive society reaching out to the poor and isolated people, domestically and internationally. Towards this goal, our faculty, staff, and students understand the need to develop a deep respect for individual personalities and characteristics in the practical application of Christian love and education.
