Since its establishment as the Graduate School of Interpretation in March 1997, Ewha GSTI (Graduate School of Translation and Interpretation) has provided professional training in interpretation and translation. As of 2007, 176 students are enrolled in the masters and doctoral programs where they undergo rigorous training and carry out in-depth researches to gain the expertise as specialists in inter-cultural communications.

Ewha Woman's University has been leading the development of Korean social work in academics, education, and the practical field of social work since its establishment as the Department of Social Work in 1947 as the very first of its kind in Korea.

The Ewha Research Institute for Translation Studies (ERITS) serves as an important linkage between the professional field and students, and focuses on research in translation and interpretation studies. Ewha GSTI currently offers Interpretation and Translation Programs in four language combinations: Korean-English, Korean-French, Korean-Chinese and Korean-Japanese.

Inter-program transfers are allowed for students who wish to enrich and broaden their training experience at GSTI. In addition, as part of an open-door policy, advanced entry (into the second year) is available for linguistically qualified people with MA degrees in other areas, as well as professional interpreters and translators who wish to further their expertise by undergoing formal training.
