International Relations Major

We have heard more than enough of the rapid changes in international relations. Korea’s security, economy, and unification cannot be achieved and maintained without taking the parameters of international relations into account. Moreover, due to recession and globalization international relations has become more significant. As such, it seems difficult for a country or a firm to attain prosperity without a rigid understanding of international relations and subsequent issues. In addition, if a country becomes a developed nation, there is a sharp increase in demand for international relations personnel. In this context, education in international relations is mandatory for both Korea and firms to develop and expand.

Asia is a new axis of development surpassing Europe and the Americas as world leaders. It is no exaggeration to say that China is making spectacular developments. It was an economically less developed country in the 20th century, but now it is a developed nation. From a country marginalized in a political and military sense, China has risen to a state of a huge importance. Today, China is bumping its shoulders with the USA as a leading state in international relations. As such, China has opportunities for crisis with Korea. If we fail to understand China and expedite measures, opportunities will be likely turn simply to crisis by casting a grim face to our future.

Despite undergoing the unprecedented recession, the US is still a superpower. Without the US it is simply impossible to have stable international relations as it is shown in cases like global economy, security, and coping with climate change. As a superpower the US is sometime a sole state and other times with cooperation with China leading international relations. The impact of the USA on Korea equals to that of China.

It is high time for universities and colleges in South Korea to set up new programs in response to these changes and nurture professional human resources. The curriculum of international relations department reflects these. English and Chinese are required courses for the six semesters of their freshman through junior years. These courses are taught by native speaking professors of each language to make improvements of students’ language proficiency. The other courses offered cover general international relations as well as area studies like America and China studies in order to produce professionals in international relations. The department is in preparation for implementing overseas academic exchange mainly with Chinese and American schools.
Educational objectives
The educational goal of the department is to enhance the department to be competitive. This end is reflected in our objective to nurture students to be professionals in international relations with high command of both English and Chinese. Expanding job opportunities our graduates will be the result of our competitiveness.
