The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism was established in 1991. In the system of higher education institutions of Ukraine the department was and remains unique.
The staff of the department is convinced that the culturological aspect and the disciplines that relay it are an important component of the education of modern specialists. Disciplines of culturological nature have great cognitive potential and to some extent fill the cultural and spiritual vacuum. And here a lot depends on the teacher, he must not only have high professionalism but also be able to think broadly, be erudite, sociable.
Disciplines taught by our department are aimed at forming students’ interest in learning about the culture, history, and language of our people. They instill a humanistic attitude to solving problems of professional and personal nature, teach the rules of language and business etiquette, develop the skills of professional communication.
