A short history of the Academy

The Latvian Academy of Culture (LAC) was founded on December 29, 1990. It was the first establishment of higher education to be opened in the renewed independent Republic of Latvia and is autonomous and state financed. The LAC offers education across a broad spectrum of humanities subjects, including the theory and history of the different branches of the arts, the theoretical disciplines of culture and philosophy, languages and other subjects as part of the respective degree programmes. Students of the LAC, graduating with a Bachelor's degree, will be qualified to seek employment in a wide variety of areas associated with the arts and mass media, as well as in research, as teachers in grammar schools, in cultural policy-making and administration bodies and in establishments such as publishing houses, museums and libraries.
