Welcome to Kyung Hee University

Kyung Hee University Research Portal

Kyung Hee University has developed each campus into a specialized comprehensive campus. The Seoul Campus is dedicated to traditional academic disciplines such as humanities, social sciences, medicine, basic science, and fine arts, while the Global Campus focuses on applied studies such as engineering, applied science, international studies, contemporary art, and physical education. The Gwangneung Campus Graduate Institute of Peace Studies has inherited and advances Kyung Hee's proud tradition of philosophy of peace. The three campuses are together home to 22 colleges, 89 departments and 14 graduate schools as well as 49 affiliated research centers (small) and 37 affiliated institutes (as of 2019).

Kyung Hee medical institutions create an optimal environment for treatment, research, and education through holistic collaboration among medicine, dentistry, and Korean medicine. With Kyung Hee Medical Center and Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong under its wings, the University has charted a new field of medicine through the innovative amalgamation of Western and Korean medicine, and endeavored to create a “disease-free civilization.” The two university hospitals jointly opened Humanitas Cancer Hospital in 2018. In 2019, they were reorganized into a single system as Kyung Hee Healthcare System to take a giant leap forward. Kyung Hee Healthcare System is restructured as a medical institution that leads the future of medicine, a research institution that creates new medicine through convergence research, an educational institution that fosters medical personnel with considerateness, respect, and excellence, and a volunteer hub that serves the marginalized global citizens around the world.

Under the founding philosophy of “Creating a Civilized World,” Kyung Hee moves ever forward as a true university of future by advancing the tradition of academe and peace. A true university of future is that which creatively connects theories and reality, science and praxis, the past and the future, and the region and the earth. Kyung Hee is rising to the challenges posed by the great civilizational transition through the five Connective Cooperation Clusters of Biohealth, Future Sciences, Civilization, Arts & Culture, and Social Physical Education and by inspiring an ideal environment of academia and practice demanded by the future society.
