A Humanitarian Department ONPU was created in November, 2000. Fundamental preparation preceded to this event. Yet at the beginning of 90th years already past century in the Polytechnic university on initiative a rector V.P.Malahov native alteration of departments which to that inexpressive called «public» was carried out.
In accordance with formed new not only for ONPU but also Ukraine, conceptions of liberal education of students, departments switched, and also a new structure was created – department of Liberal education, that became the cell of origin new, in a great deal unusual in the structure of technical institute of higher, department.
Not deciding on all those peripeteias which preceded to opening HF, we were able to lead to main – expedience of humanitarian preparation of students in a technical institute of higher.
On this time there was the row of scientific schools and directions on a future humanitarian department: study of art, in the center of research activity of which there were the questions of theatre science and theatrical history. SHE was led by the doctor of study of art, professor A.G. Bakanurskiy. Scientific schools, which were engaged in the questions of Ukrainian political history (professor, doctor of history sciences G.I.Goncharouc), problems of germenevtici and theory of cognition, worked very fruitfully (doctor of philosophical sciences, professor A.Yo.Tsofnas). The proper graduate schools, which actively prepared brain-powers, which became the skeleton of the young Humanitarian department soon, functioned within the limits of the indicated schools.
Clashing on the first stage of organization HD with ununderstanding, by scepsisom, we, without regard to that, managed to achieve objective and 2001 the Humanitarian Department ONPU adopted the first students.
Today HD prepares to the third issue. This an educational and scientific structure, which acquired vogue and confession not only in Odessa but also in a country, became already. To suffice it to say that competition of our university entrants one of the greatest among institutes of higher of city. We hope that soon we proudly will be able about the many graduating students to say that they made off our Humanitarian.
