|Welcome to the Yonsei University School of Social Welfare
Since the Yonsei University School of Social Welfare was founded in
March 2001, we have been playing a key role in the advance of research in the
field of social welfare. Starting in the year of 2006, SSW was selected as a
Brain Korea 21 project institution, exerting every effort to keep the highest
level of education and research. After being selected as BK21 program institute,
we were evaluated as the best social welfare school in Korea.
Recently, Korean society has gone through radical changes as
globalization, polarization, low fertility rate and family disorganization. It
is also time for the field of social welfare to make changes. Therefore, in
terms of overall social changes, the Yonsei University School of Social Welfare
is putting a great deal of effort to cultivate leaders who can bring advances in
social welfare worldwide as well as in Korea.
We are also cultivating global leaders in the social welfare field
by keeping pace with the era of globalization. For this purpose, we have engaged
visiting professors from leading universities abroad and extended the
opportunities for overseas education for students who are enrolled in the
master’s and doctoral programs. Furthermore, we have continued overseas
recruitment activities in order to attract excellent foreign students.
We appreciate your consistent cooperation and interest in Yonsei
SSW. We continuously make every effort to make Korean society a better place
though our advanced education programs and research activities.
