Foundational liberal education is a form of reflection on the diverse, evolving cultures of humanity with the objective to obtain deeper understanding of the world we inhabit and the way we think. This type of education has enabled humanity to grow and develop holistically. As a result, foundational liberal education has taken its places as one of the core curricula of higher education. Despite minor differences among world societies, foundational liberal education has been pursued universally for the benefit of all of humanity.

As a key factor of university education, the characteristics and functions of foundational liberal education has evolved throughout history. So far it has retained its reason for existence as the core of higher education. It is only natural that as we continue to develop the depth of foundational liberal education. We aspire to make significant contributions to students’ major-specific education, vocational training, creative knowledge production, and lives within society after graduation. Accordingly, the FLE has established the above mentioned as the purpose for the curriculum of foundational liberal education for the students of SNU.

We, the FLE at SNU, outline the following as our vision and direction for foundational liberal education in our university
