Buddhist Affiliated University

Founded in 1906 by Korea’s ecumenically minded Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, Dongguk remains one of the few Buddhist affiliated universities in the world. Yet, its doors have always been open to students and teachers of all faiths and philosophies. Students and professors from around the globe enhance the quality of education on each of Dongguk’s four campuses by bringing together dramatically diverse life experiences and cultures in a common educational mission. Graduate and undergraduate students alike are exposed to the latest theories and practical training in every area of university study. Dongguk consistently ranks among Korea’s top universities. In addition, Dongguk believes that an equally important ingredient in any collegiate experience is development of the self, a maturing process enhanced by exposure to people of diverse backgrounds, opinions, and value systems. For thousands of new students each year, Dongguk continues to serve a great first step on a lifelong journey of self-discovery, service to others, and spiritual enlightenment.
