The history of the faculty[edit]

The first departments of the history, arts and archaeology of the Moscow State University were established at 1804. At 1835 department of history was separated into the department of Russian history and the department of foreign history. The department of Russian history was led by Mikhail Pogodin, Sergei Solovyov, Vasily Klyuchevsky, the department of foreign history was led by Timofey Granovsky. At 1850 the historical-philological faculty was created.

After the October Revolution the Faculty of history and the Faculty of law were mixed into the Faculty of social sciences. At 1925 it was reorganized into a Faculty of Soviet Law and Ethnology. At the 1931 the Historical-philological faculty was transformed into Moscow Institute of Philology, Literature and History (other languages).
