 In order to carry out research into diverse cultures necessary for the study of aesthetics, students need to train themselves rigorously in language skills and to hone their analytic ability. The study of aesthetics also calls for a comprehensive understanding of philosophical issues. Recognizing this link, the department allows students to fulfill part of their major requirement through courses offered by the philosophy department, and other humanities and art-related courses.

There are now three academic societies linked to the department of aesthetics whose members conduct seminars and organize study sessions. The oldest such society is the society for the study of history and philosophy, "Inshik gwa silcheon (Consciousness and Praxis)." The second is the literary society "Postif," which succeeded the film club "if" and whose interest is not limited to specific areas of culture and art or to particular theories of culture. There is also the "Question Mark Society" whose members admit that they are social misfits but engage in the active questioning of political, economic, social and cultural issues.
