History
A Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies was originally founded in 1997 with four departments: American, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian Studies. To meet the changing nature of international relations in the 21st century, the School changed its name in 2001 to the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS). The GSIS now consists of five departments with the addition of the Korean Studies Department.

This history of institutional development reflects Hanyang’s continual efforts to meet the demands of a dynamic world. Consistent with this mission, GSIS has established itself as an institution that continues to meet the challenges of today, training the international experts of tomorrow.
