Welcome to UIH
Ural Institute of Humanities (UrIH) is a diverse and broad community of students, professors and researchers where the finest traditions of classical University education meet the aspirations of contemporary society, and the challenges of the global world.
Our departments offer different programs of fundamental, applied, and creative nature leading to a wide range academic and professional careers. From philosophy and history, psychology and political science, media and culture studies – to the insights of literature or language excellence – we build a unique academic environment which indulges in versatility, talent, and self-development.
Our research centers focus on multidisciplinary expertise and finding innovative approaches to many subjects which can improve the human condition – from studying brain activity and demography – to the preservation of cultural heritage.
The prolific research environment within UIH has given rise to multiple large-scale projects jointly implemented by top Russian and world experts.
We are also proud to be a center of international cooperation where each 10th student comes from abroad, where discussions in various languages are encouraged, where different cultural perspectives fit together, and where ideas can be shared and put into practice in a supportive and friendly atmosphere.
If you are curious and searching for new perspectives – join us and share this experience. Remember, the one who is open to the humanities – is open to the world.
