The College of Liberal Arts has been a part of Ewha's history and tradition from the very beginning. Founded in 1925, its name changed several times before becoming the College of Liberal Arts. Currently, the College of Liberal Arts consists of two divisions and eight majors.
As society undergoes noticeably rapid changes with regard to the sharing and development of knowledge, education requires broad and flexible understanding as well as a high level of specific competence education in order to strengthen students' capacity to adapt effectively to such changes. To this end, the college endeavors to create learning conditions that will help students acquire the ability to think responsibly as well as critically in this rapidly changing global environment through in-depth study in the humanities including subjects such as philosophy, history, and literature.
