Home - About Us

The School of Humanities is the biggest faculty in Tallinn University comprising of several former independent institutes (Estonian Institute of Humanities, Institute of Estonian Language and Literature, Institute of Slavonic Studies, Institute of Romance and German Studies, Institute of History) and the Language Centre. After the structural reform in the university, the departments and curricula of the former institutes were gathered into six study areas: Asian Studies, Estonian Language and Culture, History, Cultural theory, Russian and Eastern European Studies, and Western European Studies. School of Humanities is a competence centre for a wide range of knowledge and experience in Humanities. This is reflected by our curricula at Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level.

We have nearly 1300 students participating in 9 BA, 15 MA and 3 PhD curricula. In addition to our curricula, our School teaches a wide range of languages not only to our own students but to the whole university.
