Department History 

Since September 1983, the Department of Psychology has been functioning as an independent structural unit of the University. It was formed by the functional division of the Department of Pedagogics and Psychology with the allocation to a separate Department of lecturers who lectured and conducted seminars and laboratory classes in the psychological disciplines.

For this purpose, lecturers at the Department of Psychology created a teaching and methodological complex of departmental disciplines, developed methodological support for seminars and laboratory sessions in general psychology, developmental psychology and educational psychology. Integration of scientific research of lecturers took place within the framework of a common departmental theme.
