The didactic-scientific centre Seminarium Cracoviense Societatis Jesu had been established in Cracow in 1867 and in 1932 obtained the status of academic college as Philosophical Department of Jesus Society. In 1999, a new structure and name were introduced: Philosophical-Pedagogical Academy "Ignatianum" in Cracow. In 2011 it was transformed into Ignatianum Academy. Ignatianum currently runs five colleges: philosophy and culture studies (Philosophical Department), pedagogy, political studies and social work (Pedagogical Department). Moreover, it manages 10 different post-graduate studies, the University for Seniors and the Academy for Children. It is entitled to award doctorate degrees in philosophy, pedagogy and culture studies. Publishing house of the Academy has been active since 1973.
