The college of natural sciences of Dongguk University is one of the oldest in Korea, and has a lively and active program in research and education.
The slogan articulates a vision for a college synergizing the classical concerns of the liberal arts with the exigencies of global society. We are responsible for every single DU student because they all take courses from the CLA prior to graduation.
The College of Natural Sciences began as the College of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology in February 1954, and it eventually became the College of Natural Sciences in 1977. The College of Natural Sciences has not only served as the source from which the seeds of modern western natural sciences were spread in Korea, but it also has unceasingly contributed to the development of natural sciences. At present, the College of Natural Sciences encompasses five basic science departments: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Statistics, and Semiconductor Science. All departments offer both undergraduate and graduate programs (both MA and Ph.d.)
There are over 36 fulltime professors and approximately 800 undergraduate and 100 graduate students housed in the Science Building and other science research centers. The College serves as a leader of education and research in natural science. The college is organized into the following departments covering a wide range of research areas. Brief summaries and contact information for each department are below:

Mathematics, the base of all scientific studies, has developed together with mankind. Undergraduate students in Mathematics usually complete a few basic courses (including linear algebra, advanced calculus, differential equations, discrete mathematics, and introduction to Set Theory, etc) in their second year before taking advanced courses (introduction to real analysis, general topology, vector analysis, combinatorics, differential geometry, complex variables, real analysis, chaos theory, and cryptography, etc). The academic staff of the department specializes in topology, branch space, functional analytics, differential geometry, and numerical analysis, etc.

The Chemistry Department provides students with a wellestablished curriculum and research programs both at the undergraduate and the graduate levels. Students who have been trained in the department thus possess a solid chemical background to help them perform their roles successfully in a variety of chemical and related fields. Research areas of the faculty include organic synthesis, organic photochemistry, electroanalytical chemistry, physical chemistry, inorganic and nanochemistry. Departmental members try to move forward and accomplish the highest standards of teaching and research.

The Statistics Department administers both undergraduate and graduate programs leading to the Masters of Science and Ph.D. degrees, combining courses in theoretical and applied statistics with experience in consulting and computing. The Department is primarily designed to equip students for careers in business, industry and government as well as for research and teaching as professional statisticians. Students in Statistics usually complete several basic courses in Mathematics and advanced courses (Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics Ⅰ, Mathematical Statistics Ⅱ, Regression Analysis, Experimental Design, Survey Sampling) in Statistics, where students learn statistical theory, methodology, and computer programming in important languages such as SAS, SPSS, SPLUS, MATHEMATICA, etc.

The courses in the Physics Department are designed to teach students how to observe and understand nature from the viewpoint of physics so they can be leaders in physics, scientific technique, and society. Members of the Physics Department carry out research in a wide range of areas, including quantumfunctional semiconductors and their applications, nanomaterials, nuclear physics, solidstate material theory, electron correlations in quantum materials, spin electronics, and physics. The Department hosts the interdisciplinary research center (SRC) in semiconductor nanotechnology, which focuses on thin film growth, device fabrication, and spin related transport.
The Department balances teaching and researching the entire field of semiconductor science ranging from understanding of principles to application of the principles, such as materials and elements of semiconductors, high frequency semiconductors and systems for telecommunication, semiconductor designing and system integration, crystallization and device processes, etc. The department also provides handson experience for intensive education. The Department produces creative, knowledgeable and talented leaders of research and the semiconductor industry of the future. The department hosts many kinds of projects supported by the government and industry. Thus, most graduate students are fully supported during the study of their courses. Most of our alumni are now actively working at Korean Semiconductor Companies like Samsung, Hynix, Dongbu, and so on.
