Welcome to Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU)
School of Art
Welcome to the Homepage of the School of Art
Art constantly evokes new emotions through various approaches and mediums, and allows people to express themselves in diverse ways throughout their daily lives. This process ultimately improves the creativity of individuals. In modern society, where industry based on emotion and culture is important, the role and responsibility of the School of Art to educate creative, talented individuals, is greater than ever.
Sungkyunkwan University's School of Art aims to converge the fields of art in order to overcome existing limitations, and enhance the overall importance of the arts in the globalized modern society.
The 6 majors in the School of Art(Fine Arts, Design, Dance, Film, TV and Multimedia, Acting for Theater and Fashion Design) aim to foster creative artists who derive new values through active convergence research between different degree courses and academic field, while respecting specialized areas of each major.
In order to achieve this goal, the School of Art has developed independent class model and created joint area of research through close cooperation between several academic fields; for instance, opening joint classes of different majors, and exchange of classes between majors. This would help fostering talented people who will play a leading role in the coming century of the culture.
The School of Art invites you to visit our historic sites on the old Sungkyunkwan and participate in the innumerable programs.
