The history of the Institute of Social Sciences began in 1995, when the specialty “Social Work” was opened at the Faculty of Psychology. In March of 1998, the Faculty of Social Sciences was separated from the Faculty of Psychology and began full-time and part-time accelerated training of students specializing in Sociology. Then came the third specialty of Regional Studies, and in 2001 the admission to the specialty Management of Organization. On the 26 of November, 2004, the Institute of Social Sciences was established at the faculty of social sciences. In 2012 a new specialty was opened: State and Municipal Management.
