Sogang University

Department of Chemistry http://chemistry.sogang.ac.kr Sogang University opened in 1960 with the efforts of the Jesuit priests, and the chemistry department was opened in 1964. Sogang University’s Chemistry Department was recognized for its efforts by early professors and students, and in March 1973, it was operated as an experimental university. In March 1984, In May 1990, the Organic Reaction Center (Science Foundation), which was the first government-led long-term project to be undertaken in Korea, was hosted (Professor Yoon, Prof. Yoon) and positioned itself as the best chemistry department in Korea. In the meantime, the chemistry professor at Sogang University has been involved in five chemistry professors (Professor Yoon Sung-min, professor of Yonsei University in 1975, professor Baek Woon-ki in 1997, , The Magnetic Resonance Society (2005-2006, Professor Sohn Hyun Soo), and the Science Foundation Basic Research Team (Jin Jong-shik, 2002-2004). Currently, there are 17 professors, 285 undergraduates, 64 master’s degree students, and 80 graduate students of Ph.D. The major subjects of the department of chemistry are physics, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. In addition, excellent faculty members in each field are striving to maintain strict and fair academic management as well as lectures and experiments. The curriculum of chemistry is taught through thorough teaching and experimentation by faculty members. Through this, students acquire specialized knowledge and gain a comprehensive knowledge of chemistry by becoming interested in neighboring fields related to chemistry.

Department of Life Science http://lifescience.sogang.ac.kr/ Life Science has been an integral part of Sogang University since its inception in February of 1960. The first Genetics class was offered in April, 1961 and three years later, in March, 1963, the Department of Biology was officially established. In 1993, the Department name was changed to Life Science to embrace the advances of Biology and Life Sciences. We have now grown to 15 current professors with 7 postdoctoral fellows, 80 graduate students (both Master and Ph.D. programs), and 255 undergraduate students (as of 2017). In 2017, we celebrated our Golden Jubilee (the 50th year) of our department with thousands of alumni and students. Faculty in our department have diverse research interests that can be categorized into three general groups: Microbiology (Virology, Bacteriology, and Protistology), Plant Biology (Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Plant Genetics), and Animal Biology (Immunology, Neurobiology, Developmental biology, Cell Signaling, Cancer, and Stem Cells). A priority within the Department has been to establish strong and collaborative atmospheres which we believe fuel the superior quality of both research and education. From this basis, strong inter-departmental and multi-disciplinary researches and achievements have been additionally followed. Consequently, our students, staff members, faculty members, and alumni have always been extending boundaries of knowledge in basic research, education, health sciences, business, and beyond. The Department of Life Science at Sogang University is an exciting place to be. We now have over 50 years of experience and believe that our research and education will continue to contribute to society for another century and more.

Sogang University

Department of Mathematics http://math.sogang.ac.kr/ Since the beginning of human history, many subjects of mathematics have occurred due to the necessity of calculation relating to taxation and merchant; number theory; geodesy; astronomy. As the human civilization advances, mathematical areas have been expanded and regarded as the most efficient and general research method in various phenomena and complicated relations in such diverse areas as natural science, engineering, humanities, social science, and so on. Mathematics department was established in 1960 when Sogang University (it was called Sogang College at that time) was founded; since then, mathematics department, equipped with its prominent faculty, has been passionate in education and research. As we have conducted research supported consistently by various research institutions, Sogang mathematics department now stands in line with the world prestigious universities in terms of its quantitative and qualitative research outcome. Mathematics department has also fostered many prominent human resources and mathematicians. We study pure mathematics such as geometry, algebra, topology, analysis; and applied mathematics such as engineering calculations, financial mathematics. We also aim at fostering human resources who will lead mathematical science research and industrial development in the near future. The demand of Sogang mathematics graduates is consistently increasing; mathematics graduates are working in many areas related to education, finance, computer, and information, and playing pivotal roles in those areas. Sogang mathematics department would like to welcome everyone who has dream and passion in mathematical science.
