Seoul Citizen College

The Seoul Metropolitan Government runs several colleges in Seoul, including Seoul Citizen College, in order to provide abundant learning opportunities to the city's residents. The KU Research Institute of Korean Studies (RIKS) signed an MOU with the Seoul Citizens Hall on July 21, 2014, allowing it to run three 10-week courses each semester. Based on the human and material resources of the KU RIKS, the most respected university research institute in the field of Korean Studies, we seek to fulfill our social responsibilities as an institution of higher education by providing quality educational programs to Seoul residents through literary, social science, and philosophy lectures linked to Korean Studies.
