Undergraduate Overview

Since its founding in 1949, Kyung Hee University has pursued the Kyung Hee Spirit of "Scholarship and Peace" as well as the founding principle of "creating a civilized world." Kyung Hee University has developed remarkably, contributing to the fulfillment of a "cultural world for humanity" as the leader of the future of academics and the creator of common values for humanity. In particular, the past five years have witnessed notable growth and a rise in the University's stature through forward-looking and adventurous endeavors in education, research, public service, and praxis. Kyung Hee University has prepared for a second leap forward while seeking a new paradigm of future university development. It reflected on the fundamental mission of the University and established a new vision and goals for becoming a true university of the future. In this new vision for a university that transcends the traditional notion of the university as a mere physical location and the limitations of an exclusive academe, Kyung Hee University will rise to international prestige and develop into an international center of research, education, and praxis that brings together reality and imagination, the basics and applied sciences, and theory and practice. Pursuing "Global Eminence" on a foundation of academic excellence, Kyung Hee University will become an academic community that fulfills its social responsibility by cultivating world citizens with the capacity for communication and public service.


"A Civilized World" is created by the determination and efforts of humanity with peace, human dignity, and happiness as the foremost principles. It is a global society in which humanity transcends racial, national, ethno-cultural, religious, ideological, and socio-economic barriers to peacefully coexist and prosper. It is also "a genuine field of life" in which the natural world, with humans at the center, can function in its very essence. "A Civilized World" is "spiritually beautiful, materially affluent, and humanly rewarding." Spiritual and mental balance and harmony are necessary for happiness. We are pursuing a society in which all humanity can partake in the joys and value of life through this harmony. This is a society in which the individual can respect others while also finding the self, and can become sustainably abundant through the creation of new cultures and uprightness for future generations. "A Civilized World" overcomes conflicts and confrontations through human effort. It strives to develop the modern phenomenon of technology while overcoming its damaging effects and maximizing its benefits. The goal is to improve humanity's welfare by creating a culture and civilization in which new ideas and aesthetics can blossom. In addition to "Creating a Civilized World," Kyung Hee University is creating an academic world that embodies humanity's common values based on a tradition and spirit that harmonizes research, education, and practice. It will contribute to creating this new world by cultivating leaders with a creative humanity.
