About Ewha

OUR NAME

Symbolizing the tradition and spirit of women’s education in Korea

The name Ewha was bestowed by Emperor Gojong in 1887 to commemorate the beginning of women’s education in Korea. It serves not merely as a name of this time-honored institution but as a symbol of the tradition and spirit of women’s education in Korea.

EDUCATION

Knowledge Goodness Beauty

The wisdom of knowledge, the virtue of goodness and the harmony of beauty make up the three pillars of education at Ewha, dedicated to nurturing both intelligence and character in our students.

VISION

Global hub for women’s education

For 127 years Ewha has strived for the humanization of women, a vision that is spreading fast to every corner of the world. As an international hub for women’s global education, Ewha hopes to serve the women of the world in realizing their dreams and exploring new opportunities.

MISSION

Nurturing women leaders rooted in the Christian virtues of knowledge, goodness & beauty

The humanization of women is Ewha’s founding mission, which has served as the driving force behind our history and growth. Based on the Christian virtues of knowledge, goodness and beauty, this mission makes up the core of our spirit in the pursuit of our vision in education.

GLOBALIZATION

International exchange programs: The world is our classroom

Ewha produces strong students capable of working in all corners of the world through diverse and practical international exchange programs. Every year, over 1,600 Ewha students participate in a wide range of short- and long-term educational programs overseas, thus fulfilling a shared dream of humanity. Through dual and joint degree programs, as well as exchange and visiting student programs, with overseas universities, Ewha is leading academic exchange across borders. Particularly popular among students is the Faculty-led Study Abroad Program, Ewha’s signature educational program, in which professors plan their own programs and travel with students to universities or institutions around the world to participate in joint classes and seminars over a period of seven to ten days, and the Ewha Global Initiative exploration program, which sends students to United Nations offices, embassies, government agencies and university research institutes around the world, develops students’ global capacities. With its leading role in exchange programs, Ewha has also been selected for six consecutive years as the only Korean partner university for the Ewha-Harvard College in Asia Program, an Asian international exchange program hosted by Harvard undergraduates.
