Daejin University is a private university in Pocheon City, Gyeonggi province of South Korea. About 200 instructors are employed. The current president is Chung, Tae Soo, who has served since the university's founding.

The university operates Daejin University China Campus, a study abroad program based at the campuses of two universities in the People's Republic of China: Soochow University in Suzhou, and Harbin Normal University in Harbin.[1]

Academics[edit]

Undergraduate courses of study are divided among six colleges: Culture, Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Sciences and Engineering, and Arts. Training is also provided at the graduate level, through specialized graduate schools of Education, Industry, Business Administration and Legal Affairs.

History[edit]

The university was established in 1991 by the Daesun Jinrihoe, a Korean religious group. The location was chosen due to its position near the midpoint of the line connecting Halla-san with Baekdu-san, and thus at the symbolic heart of the Korean peninsula.[2]
