Faculty of History and Philosophy

The Faculty of History and Philosophy is the successor of the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy which activated in the University of Cluj between 1872 and 1948. After a series of changes which occurred between 1948 and 1959 a decision was taken to adopt a curriculum with a historical-philosophical content, combining philosophy and history, maintained until 1989. After 1990, taking into account the experience of prestigious departments and faculties in other countries, the Faculty of History and Philosophy has taken important steps towards modernizing its structure and teaching programmes.
