Faculty History and Structure
The Faculty of Humanities was created shortly after the Academy's revival in 1992. Then it consisted of the Departments of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Cultural Studies, Ukrainian Language, English Language, and the Department of Foreign Languages. In 1994, the Departments of History, Comparative Literature and Physical Training, and in 1997 - the Department of Political Studies were organized. The same year the Department of Comparative Literature and the Department of Foreign Languages were united into the single Department of Philology. During the years 1997-2002 the Faculty bore the name “Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences”. The present day Faculty of Humanities is made of six Departments, which are the Departments of Cultural Studies, History, Philology, Philosophy and Religious Studies, General and Slavic Linguistics, and the Department of Ukrainian Language. The Faculty offers Bachelor’s Degrees in Cultural Studies, History, Philology (with specialisation in Ukrainian Language and Literature), Philosophy; and Master’s Degrees in Cultural Studies: Theory and History of Cultural Studies, History, Archaeology and Ancient History of Ukraine, Philology (with specialisation in Theory, History of Literature and Comparative Literature; and Theory, History of Ukrainian Language and Comparative Linguistics), Philosophy: History of Philosophy.

Training in the second foreign language is available for the students of all the NaUKMA specializations.
The annual prize established by Roman Struts, Professor of the University of Calgary (Canada) is awarded each year for the best year paper and Bachelor / Master Thesis in philology. The candidates are approved by the NaUKMA Department of Philology.
