Major of Buddhist Child Studies on Buddhism
Welcome to the major of Buddhist-oriented Child Studies. Our major was inaugurated in 1987 with a Buddhist orientation and is now contributing to educating students in traditional and modern Korean culture. Our major also focuses on understanding childhood development within the context of the family function in a multicultural environment. The coursework is designed to help students understand child growth and development from a physical, socio-emotional and cognitive perspective. Students are trained to think critically about child development processes and apply their training to real life situations through a wide variety of fieldwork opportunities.
