The Culture Academy at the Research Institute of Korean Studies (RIKS) was established to attract people to the humanities by sharing the research achievements of this field with society. As of 2018, the Culture Academy has offered various humanities courses through the Seoul Citizen College and Citizen School programs, which are jointly run by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and Seongbuk-gu local government. For example, the Culture Academy offers an Instrumental Language course and its Top Leader course at the Korea University Graduate School of Policy Studies. The Culture Academy strives to contribute to the communication and integration among the humanities disciplines through a variety of humanities language courses and workshop programs that researchers have created and shared with relevant organizations and local communities.
