Message from Dean

The Chung-Ang University College of Pharmacy is one of the most prestigious pharmaceutical colleges in Korea. Established in 1953, it boasts a long and rich history and tradition.

Based on the university’s founding spirit of ‘justice and truth’, the College is dedicated to improving public health through education and research on discovering medications and promoting creativity. To this end, it strives to provide nurturing, systematic pharmaceutical education on drug development and use for aspiring pharmaceutical experts, and opportunities to work on university/industry/institute research projects for clinical & laboratory researchers. It also aims to train holistic and open-minded students with high ethical standards and a strong sense of public service.

Alternatively, the CAU Graduate School of Pharmacy encourages those who aim to be globally competitive experts armed with strong knowledge in theory and real-world experiments. At the CAU Graduate School of Food & Drug Administration, one of the best pharmaceutical graduate schools in the country, researchers examine ways to better produce and manage food, drugs, and cosmetics; this will contribute to better and healthier lives.

With the recent launch of the R&D Center building, the CAU College of Pharmacy is opening a new chapter of its history. Recruiting outstanding researchers into its faculty, and setting up cutting-edge research and education infrastructures, the College is rising beyond its already prestigious tradition.

Staying in line with the university’s long-term development plan CAU VISION 2018+, the College is moving towards becoming a research-centered institution. All of its faculty members will continue to work passionately to make the College an attractive education institution that aims to foster future pharmaceutical experts.
