Faculty of Humanities

The Faculty of Humanities is an academic environment where old traditions of the University merge with modern history, philology and culture studies. We are proud of our versatility and happy to be a place where discussions in various languages are encouraged, where different cultural experiences fit together, and where ideas can be shared and put into practice in a friendly atmosphere.

The students of the Faculty of Humanities deepen their knowledge in the area of Lithuanian Studies, History of Lithuania and Central-Eastern Europe, Politics, Culture and Languages of East Asian and Scandinavian Countries, Cultural Studies and Philology of Modern Languages, such as English, French, German, and Italian.

The responsibility of the Faculty of Humanities is to provide the students with tools that are necessary for their professional success, such as having experience of international exchange, learning to communicate freely and working in a team. We encourage our students to be creative and seek continuous improvement both in academic and professional sphere.
