KHARKOV NATIONAL UNIVERSITY
School of Geology and Geography
The School of Geology and Geography provides training in Geology, Hydrogeology,
Geography, Social-Economic Geography and Ecology. The School graduates obtain
positions at research centres, geological prospecting parties, project research
organizations and companies dealing with international economic relations and
planning of social economic development, ecological and conservational
institutions, supervising bodies and also at secondary and higher educational
establishments as teachers and instructors of geography, ecology and
The School was founded as the Department of Mineralogy and Geognosy, which was
opened at Kharkiv University in 1837. Later the Department of the Russian State
Geography appeared. Since then geological and geographical research at the
University has never ceased. The Departments were headed by outstanding
researchers in the fields of geography, geobotany, soil science, country science,
who made a significant contribution to the development of the world science, and
whose students maintained the University's traditions. After the University was
re-organized in 1933 the School's enrollment grew considerably. The 1930 -1940s
were marked by fruitful work of the University's Research Institute of Geology,
which continued research of the natural resources of Slobidska Ukraine and other
The School has a significant research and teaching potential; it employs 10 full
professors, 27 associate professors, 15 instructors. 530 full-time, 420 part-time
(correspondence) and 25 postgraduate students are enrolled annually.
In order to ensure high standards of students' practical skills, the School uses
two training centres in the Kharkiv region (one in the village of Gaydary and the
other in a suburban area near Izium). Training and professional practicums are
also conducted in the Crimea, the Carpathians, the Donets Basin, the Kharkiv
region and in Siberia.
The School closely cooperates with 4 universities of other countries and over 20
universities in the CIS. Recently a project for students academic exchange with
Manchester University (Great Britain) has been signed, according to which the
best students majoring in Social Economic Geography with a sufficient command of
English are regularly sent for short-term study to Manchester. Theoretical and
practical training is combined with practice in research carried out at the
Theoretical training in fundamental subjects includes courses in Higher
Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
The School offers courses in the Humanities: History of Ukraine, Philosophy,
Politology, Sociology, Religion Studies, Pedagogy, Psychology, a Foreign
Language, Business Ukrainian, etc.
Among profession-oriented subjects are Introduction to the Speciality,
Geophysics, Geochemistry, Geo-Information Processing, Mathematical Methods of
Research, Research Methods for a Particular Speciality, General Geology, General
Hydrogeology, Soil Science, General Ecology, Topography, Cartography, Economic
Geography of Ukraine, Economic and Political Geography of Foreign Countries,
Optimization of Natural Resources Utilization, Assessment of Influence upon the
Natural Environment, Geo-Informational Systems and Technologies, Computer
Cartography, Geographic-Meliorative Moniitoring, Hydrogeodynamics, Oil and Gas
Geology, Theory of Filtration, World Ocean Geology, Continents Geology, History
of Geographic Discoveries, subjects of the Geological, Geographical,
Hydrogeological and Ecological cycles.
The School provides the following core subjects: Methods of Specialized
Research, Methods of Prospecting and Assessment of Mineral Deposits, Conservation
of Mineral Resources and Underground Space, Underground Space Management,
Ecolithomonitoring, Methodology of Teaching Geography andEcology, Introduction to
Pedagogy, Mathematical Simulation, Computer Technologies, elective courses in
Social Economics and Physical Geography, Ecology, Conservation Management,
Geo-Information Processing, Geology, Hydrogeology.
At military training courses students receive military education and the rank of
The Departments are thoroughly tracking changes in the social demand for
specialists in geosciences and alter the training process correspondingly. Over
15 degree opportunities offered by the School are future-oriented, which is a
guarantee for School graduates' future employment.
