Academic specializations

Since its foundation, DSU has pursued a strategy of specialization. This has enabled it to become a leading Korean university in fields such as Film, IT, Design, and Digital Contents. Recently, Dongseo has been selected for competitive national projects worth over 40 million USD in funding for the further development of its educational capabilities.


Additionally, DSU has continually emphasized the importance of globalization.

In 2013, Dongseo was listed as one of the top-50 universities in Asia for internationalization by the British ratings firm QS and the Chosun Ilbo.

Future University

In 2016, Dongseo announced its plan of becoming a Future University. This largely involves introducing educational approaches that move beyond traditional textbook-based learning, developing student creativity through specialized education and support centers, focusing on Asian culture contents and cutting-edge technologies, and evolving as an Assembly University through content sharing based on strategic partnerships and online platforms like Global Access Asia.
