Natural Sciences

The College of Natural Sciences of Kangwon National University was founded in 1973 and consists of 9 departments, about 90 professors, more than 1,200 undergraduates and 200 graduate students dedicated to education and research. With excellent professors and the latest high-tech facilities, our college offers systematic education and creative research to nurture a high class work force who can contribute to the innovation of basic sciences and cutting-edge science and technology. We participate on Core Technology in Molecular Science, Human Resources Training for Environmental Technology under the BK21 project, and Bio-Medical Convergence project to support research activities of graduate and undergraduates students and improve the nation’s competitive power. We will continue to focus on training the next generation of natural sciences in pursuit of maintaining academic excellence and making contributions to our nation and world society.

  • Department of Biologycal Science
    • The academic program in the Department of Biologycal sciences attempts to help the students understand the biological phenomena of living organisms broadly and clearly, and to develop scientific ideas to become good scientists and contribute to future advances in life sciences.
      The Department also offers programs leading to the degrees of Bachelor, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. The graduate program does not only emphasize intensive course work but also individual research training which acquaints the student with current techniques in fields of his or her interest. Opportunities for research are available in such diverse areas as plant and animal taxonomy, plant and animal physiology, plant and animal ecology, environmental microbiology, cell biology, molecular genetics, molecular biology, immunology, and oncology.
